"Album Review: “See Through It All” by Don’t Panic"

Don’t Panic have released their debut album and first release in a decade, titled “See Through It All.”

The album kicks off with “Alicia,” a song where the vocals really stand out and deliver melodies that are just as catchy as the instrumentals that drive it. A lot of the remaining songs on this record are similar to its opener, such as “Fall Of ‘99” and “No Time For Second Chances” – two songs that open with upbeat instrumentation in their intros and contain some very catchy melodies throughout, especially during their choruses.

While tracks like these showcase the punk influences within the band’s sound, there are some tracks that seem to be more influenced by pop-punk. The very energetic “Keystone Story” feels nostalgic and reminiscent of older music within that genre, “A Change Of Pace” brings another very strong vocal performance, and “Regret Is A Terrible Roommate” is one of the most memorable songs on this record overall.

A couple of tracks on here showcase a darker side of the band’s sound, including “The Fix” (one that really captivated me) and “Life Of The Funeral” (a track that’s a bit similar to the first few on the album, as it opens with a very catchy intro). “Let It Ride” is a bit similar to these aforementioned tracks, as it also mixes in some darker composition here and there, and the vocal performance made it a very interesting closing track. The remaining two tracks stand out amongst the rest in regards to sound. “Paper Smile” showcases influences of rock rather than pop-punk or punk rock, and “Sheep In Wolves’ Clothing” is a ballad that begins on a slower and softer note before more instrumentals kick in to drive another upbeat rhythm.

In Conclusion…

From the energy and memorability throughout to the nostalgia that the various influences bring, “See Through It All” is a solid comeback from Don’t Panic. -


Pennsylvania based band Don't Panic just released their debut album "See Through It All". This is a rad 11 track release, and one that's all too easy to keep on repeat. A debut can be tough, because sometimes a band hasn't found "their sound". That's not the case with Don't Panic. Overall, this is a beautifully put together and fun record.

In preparation for the album, the band self-released 7 singles... that's right, 7 singles! The songs are all really catchy. Drawing elements from a few different genres, the band blends together aspects of Pop, Punk, and straight up Rock n Roll to really make their own style. We added one our personal favorites "The Fix" to our Underground Punk playlist on Spotify (we love that outro).

2020 is a rough year for artists releasing music. An album like this deserves a full tour to support it, but for the time being, that's not an option. Stream the album from the band below, and if you dig it, buy that shit! Make sure to follow Don't Panic to stay on top of what else they have going on. -


Dark Horse (9.3.21)
See Through it All



Formed in 2019 and named after the Douglas Adams’ favorite novel of
founding vocalist/guitarist Ted Felicetti, Don’t Panic began as an
endeavor where making genuine, fun rock and roll music came first and
everything else second. Joining Ted were Keith Slader (bass), AJ Larsen
(guitar), and Anthony Paesano (drums). Based out of the Poconos in
Northeast Pennsylvania the band quickly began recording their debut full
length album 'See Through it All' which was self released on Nov 27th,
2020 and followed by tour dates supporting bands like Bowling for Soup,
Face to Face, and Bigwig. After a year of the world being locked at home
Don't Panic is now releasing their follow up and second full length
album, 'Dark Horse' on Sept 3rd, 2021 which draws heavily on the bands
combined influences including Foo Fighters, Bayside, Lit, White Reaper,
Motion City Soundtrack, Millencolin, Face to Face and many others.
