Gimme Some Truth- Kids Love Lies Interview

Kids Love Lies were recently described by the NME as “Tweecore/power pop/pop-punk” -Pardon ? Apart from over use of the word “pop” what does that even mean? “Tweecore”, I assume is the polar opposite of hardcore, indeed the definition of “twee” means “Overly precious or nice” so lets throw that one out of the window straight away eh? Now then, onto power pop, pop punk ? A description that seems to be given to anything that is melodious but has a rather spiky attitude, yes ? Is it both punk and pop? However punk was surely the antithesis of “pop music” as we knew it and correct me if I’m wrong, but I can’t recall the Pistols singing “Anarch-twee In The UK”, although admittedly, John Lydon has since developed a disturbing penchant for all things twee-d.
