Free Throw, “Kim Tastie”

Loren DiBlasi

On their Bandcamp, Nashville’s Free Throw openly state their preference for making “sad songs.” A quick listen of “Kim Tastie”, a track lifted from the band’s forthcoming LP Those Days Are Gone, and it’s clear they’re really not kidding. Free Throw wear the label of “emo” proudly, recycling sounds that evoke that genre’s golden period (mid-90s to early 2000s) and inspiring plenty of fresh feelings in the process.

“Kim Tastie” is a tale of love gone sour; a driving emo anthem characterized by searing self-doubt, angst practically oozing from your earbuds. “Am I not all that you wanted?” the track ponders, beginning with a whimper and ending with a bang. Fair warning to those who’ve recently had their hearts broken: “Kim Tastie” feels like pouring salt in an open wound. But isn’t that the point?

The sure-to-be-cheerful full-length Those Days Are Gone is out September 16 via Count Your Lucky Stars.
