Punch Punch Kick’s self-titled debut LP (out June 2, 2017 via Wyatt Blair’s Lolipop Records) came to fruition over the course of four years. New single and album opener “Licking My Wounds” isn’t a kiss-off for a girl who’s done them wrong, but a coming-of-age anecdote about vocalist Phil McDonald and his wife struggling to stay strong while working crazy hours and barely seeing each other.

With a gigantic hook that captures the immediacy of The Ataris’ So Long, Astoria, shredding harmonized guitar-work, and punchy, driving drums, the tune has the perfect shine of a major label power-pop debut with the crunchy playfulness of a snotty punk record — only this time the punks have grown up.
