Poor English

Poor English aren't really what you think of when you think of a Portland band. There's no four-part harmony, tasteful horns, twee aesthetic. This is pop-punk. It's musical soul food for the Warped Tour generation. Let's not mince words - Poor English make the music you forgot you wanted. Tunes that drill to bottom of your cold, blog-riddled musical heart and bring it all back to the surface. You're welcome.


"Lead single 'Everlaster' is the definite standout...featuring extremely dense instrumentation packed with sporadic, mathy guitars, buzzing slides, a silky smooth bassline, and lead vocalist Joe Hadden’s impassioned pleas, it really shows off the band’s ability to harmonize what should sound like total chaos into a rock song with instant pop appeal."


"The five tracks on the Poor English EP are musical powerhouses, yet they maintain a sense of gorgeous delicacy"
