This week The Dowsers is publishing a series of posts and playlists taking stock of music in 2017. My contribution compiles the best tracks from pop-punk, emo, metalcore and any other sub-genre falling under the Warped Tour umbrella.Many of these artists you’ll encounter are becoming harder and harder to classify. Paramore, for example, have ditched pop-punk for retro-new wave (sort of), while a band like PVRIS, who started life as metalcore bruisers, now create electropop, yet even that label doesn’t fully capture their dark, epic sound. Check it out here.
