Strange. In Endeavours breaks up
the day I start writing the review of their five-song EP. One question
comes to mind... will it work with Simple Plan?
Tired jabs at pre-pubescent idols aside,
the press materials get it right this time around: The Walkmen
and The Strokes are incontestably
accurate points of comparison for this Lexington fivepiece. They've
got those trademark, momentous guitar/bass/drum compositions paired
with self-important, reverberating Casablancan vocals. Fairly
uninventive stuff, then, although they manage some decent hooks on
"The Move" and lead single "You've Got Your Friends, I've Got Mine."
The latter is actually a swell little rocker; one can forgive the
atrociously overdone singing style due to the feel-good pop sense the
band brings to the track. These folks are far from originals, but at
least they do their predecessors justice. Your less cool friends will
think these folks are, like, the next U2.
