"Beneath a bunker, ahem recorded their debut EP Just Wanna Be and as you'll hear on the album's first single, "Bottle Rocket," it's as if the band is trying to break down every wall that surrounds them. It's a track of thundering empowerment, as the hazy dreams of everything the band wants to be are bolstered by electric percussion and guitar. Whether imaging a tree of their own to climb or envisioning explorations that take them out of the doldrums of adulthood, "Bottle Rocket," is about blasting off and finding whatever you dream of. It's pure adrenaline driven punk, and even if you dream of spending another day on the couch watching Futurama (me) you'll feel more than prepared to do it." - The Grey Estates

“Bottle Rocket,” the EP’s anthemic, shout-and-response lead single, is an ideal thesis statement for the band. In it, Anderson and Emanuel lament the pains of growing older and the fear of becoming an “apparition with a CV / All serious and in a tizzy.” They instead choose to live like a dazzling firework, even if they’re still kids “whose dreams are pretty hazy.” The apparent message? It’s imperative to hold onto one’s innocence in the face of never-ending hardships." - City Pages
