Del Paxton // New EP 'September, Bedtime, Ontario' out now

The Buffalo boys Del Paxton are back with their first release since 2017. September, Bedtime, Ontario are a set of singles teeming with the exuberance and excitement of being young, alive, and earnest. As lively and bold as ever, the new EP finds the trio at their best, churning out those heartfelt and punchy emo hits reminiscent of the mid-90’s. Listeners might find themselves lost in the unpredictable twists and turns of the trio's precise musicianship, but never at the expense of punk-adjacent excitement and sincerity.

The band shared "September" and "Bedtime" earlier this summer, and the last of the bunch is "Ontario," a song of compositional and thematic dichotomies that pays tribute to Del Paxton's favorite themes of innocence and camaraderie through images of companionship and nighttime canoeing. Quick, agile passages snap in and out of focus while Del Paxton examine extremes of stasis and catharsis, solace and trauma, the past and present.
