Nice poppy upbeat tempo on the intro. The vocalist has such a sweet voice, with a higher register. Love the groove in the chorus, I can see singing along with this song in the car of while I’m doing the house work. I think the song is really well written and I gotta say for a pop style ditty like this it’s very refreshing. I find most pop music to be trite at best. Well done on the lyrics guys. The pacing is damn near perfect. I love the way the music has a couple of drop outs. It’s a great way to emphasize a line in a song. Musically the drums are well done and create a nice back beat for the rest of the band. The guitar is also really nice. Not over played but very much there.
Would I Listen to More of Their Stuff: Sure. I like a well done pop song every now and then. I am not ashamed at all to admit that I keep P!nk, One Republic, Maroon 5 and others readily available and on several playlists. I think this song would go well with any of those bands. I’m planning to check out more of their stuff and if it’s all as solid as this song then I will be purchasing tracks in the very near future.
Who They Are: No band situation is ever the same due to member changes, financing, and overall creative differences in the writing process. But with a newly remodeled studio located in the Pasadena area, everything is starting to take shape for these four guys from Southern California.
