Okay, so I like pop-rock/pop-punk music in the same style as Fall Out Boy (some of their stuff anyway), Taking Back Sunday, etc. Phew, it’s out there. I don’t care, I think simple power-chords are catchy.
Anyway, here’s a quick review of two EP’s by a band I found on Last FM and another site one day, before I go off to do my Extension English assessment.
You, Me, and Everyone We Know are pretty catchy, and some of their songs use some pretty stock-standard techniques and sound similar to other stuff I’ve heard. There’s a few differences however.
1. Both discs I’m reviewing actually have some varying styles of songs, they aren’t all the same. They manage to develop nice hooks and create songs with different vibes.
2. Both of these discs have been released for free. Which is very nice of the band.
I highly recommend checking out these guys. Seriously. Even if you hate bands like Fall Out Boy because they’re the idols of screaming scene kids everywhere, these guys have a relatively small following, and they sound just as good, if not better. And considering it’s all for free, what’ve you got to lose?

Overall score for both EP’s: 7/10
