Chunk! No, Captain Chunk Unleash The Sax In ‘Complete You’

Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! assured fans that the new album would be more mature, but no one knew that meant we were getting a saxophone solo. You read that right, the Fearless Records band utilize a saxophone in what is their most mature song to date. Don’t let the wording here fool you; mature is not a synonym for boring. Complete You is full of surprises. The last three singles have shown a more defined version of the band. Lead single, Bitter, contained all the fun and energy Chunk is known for; Gone Are The Good Days takes the sound from their previous record and takes it further; now Complete You takes the band in a new direction. The full album is sure to have something for everyone.

Complete You – Chunk! No, Captain Chunk!

Complete You Is Completely Full Of Surprises

Complete You contains two surprises that Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! are not known to utilize. The first of these surprises is a featuring spot by AJ Perdomo of The Dangerous Summer. This guest spot was hidden and not present on the tracklist for the record. I got to say, I really like Perdomo’s performance on the track. This is different for the band, but I welcome it with open arms. I wonder who else Chunk will work with in the future. For all we know there are more hidden guest appearances on the full record.

The Bridge Is Full Of Jazzy Goodness

The second surprise is the best part of the whole song. Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! take a huge risk and incorporate a saxophone into the bridge. Honestly, this is better than a breakdown (however, I would love to hear a song utilize both!). The inclusion of the sax doesn’t feel shoehorned at all; it really matches the tone of the song. I hope the band continues to utilize the saxophone on future releases. If Yellowcard were the poppunk band with a violin, Chunk! No, Captain Chunk! are the easycore band with a saxophone.

Gone Are The Good Days

This is probably my new favorite “soft” Chunk song. Previously their track Taking Chances was a long-time favorite of mine. Worst Case Scenario from their last record, Get Lost, Find Yourself was another solid “soft” song by the band. I am just glad that Chunk are here to ring in the season with the summer album of 2021. My only complaint about the track is it just ends after the bridge. I definitely could have listened to the chorus one last time after the sax solo; however, the track is not ruined by this artistic decision.
