#438: Tim Vantol - If We Go Down We Will Go Together

Drawing comparisons to the likes of Frank Turner and Chuck Ragan, Tim Vantol is making the kind of country-inspired folk-punk that’s seen a rise in recent years, and much like his contemporaries, for this release does indeed lift Vantol to such heights, ‘If We Go Down…’ is a record of rousing solidarity, and whilst its narratives aren’t always the most positive, his uplifting attitude bleeds through in to each of them, making every track instantly relatable and refreshingly cathartic.
