Really good, well-executed power pop... I hear a lot of attempts at this sound, but these guys are really hitting the mark. The vocals are strong, the guitars chime, and the rhythm section is solid. I even like the ballads, which is usually where weaknesses show through for young bands. They released an album, Well Here We Are Then, in May 2010, and are putting finishing touches on another one now. They're playing around the Midwest currently, I expect they'll tour once the new album is finished.
