Ohio emo pop-punk act Cotter reflects on someone who isn’t in your life anymore, on “Never Look Back,” a track which briefly forays into pop sensibilities before exploded into anthemic production brimming with booming bass, 808 drums, ticking high hats, and claps.
Lyrically, the track is about someone who has turned their back on you, with a vulnerable message on the denial and self-hatred that such abandonment breeds.
Known for their powerful pop-punk artistry, Columbus-based Cotter cover a spectrum of raw emotions and intimate experiences. Formed in mid-2019 as an acoustic act consisting of Howard Mesharer (vocals) and Zachary Lukkarila (guitar/vocals), Cotter evolved into a quintet with the addition of Kyle Spears (guitar), Tim Waters (bass), and Andrew Brzeczkowski (drums).
Showcasing their ability to capture sentimentality within an explosive sonic style, Cotter continues to grow into a versatile act capable of moving from ballad-style melodies into powerhouse pop-punk and everything in-between.
