DETENTION is a high-energy pop-punk/alt-rock band of teens from Akron, Ohio. Exploring the angst and experience of youth, the band delivers sophistication. Their compositions are both power intensive and emotionally rich. In their latest single, Peachy Keen, DETENTION showcases the anxious clairvoyance that clouds a teenager’s mind. 

The track is a quest for clarity, through the miasma of self-doubt, loneliness, and insanity. It opens with rippling string acoustics that follow the pastel sopranos. Narrative driven, the lyrics intricately present the song’s theme. And in a fit of control and power, a sudden and drastic switch propels us into an electric punk space. Geared with gunning riffs and emphatic vocals and hard hitting beats, it takes on an empowered spirit.
