Cat No: HR6683-1

This is a story of the little pop punk band that could. Out of the small Welsh town of Wrexham, a little band called Neck Deep wrote and recorded their debut EP in 2012 in an attic/home studio and unleashed it to the world. That EP, Rain In July, turned 10 years old in 2022. To celebrate, the band is releasing the EP for the first time on vinyl as a stand-alone release. Featuring the first song the band ever wrote/recorded, “What Did You Expect” – the EP captures the brash and bold energy of a band with nothing to lose and nothing to prove.

Fast and full of teenage angst and emotion, and proudly flying the tongue in cheek “Generic Pop Punk” moniker, the EP catapulted the band into being one of the most talked about sensations in the pop punk world and shined a light onto the UK pop punk scene emerging in the early 2010s. But it would be the emo acoustic ballad, “A Part Of Me” a duet with Laura Whiteside, that permanently shifted the scene. With over 17M views on YouTube and a reemergence in recent months as a certified viral hit on TikTok, the song cemented Rain In July’s existence as a classic and essential debut release.
