Last Letters – I Love You, Amy Smart (Single Review)
What’s the best way to kick off the new year? With fresh new music of course and thanks to Last Letters, that’s exactly what we have. Their new single I Love You, Amy Smart dropped like 2021 at the stroke of midnight.
Charles Iwuc is a New England pop-punk veteran and the man behind the Brooklyn based band Last Letters. Iwuc released his first album entitled Nothing To Write Home About, in November of 2016 and has had a steady stream of releases since. Last Letters style is a similar to bands such as Blink-182, Jimmy Eat World, Angels & Airwaves as well as Ace Enders and A Million Different People.
When I listened through for the first time, I started thinking about generic pop-punk (never in a bad way) which led to thinking about the only band that uses that description: Neck Deep. I could’ve sworn I was listening to Ben Barlow and how similar Iwuc’s voice is to his. The more I listened to this song, the more I wanted to grab a pair of skinny jeans and Old Skool Vans, while rocking out at a show.
Overall I really like this song and highly recommend Last Letters to anyone who likes Blink-182, Neck Deep, Jimmy Eat World, Sum 41, or anyone who likes old school pop-punk. In addition to I Love You, Amy Smart, Last Letters has also released eleven singles including: “I Don’t Want Coal”, “Split”, “All For Nothing”, “Means Something to Someone”, and “You Swore” as well as a full length entitled Nothing To Write Home About. All are available on Apple Music, Spotify, and other streaming platforms.
