We Are The In Crowd, about to blow up in your face.
on 19 November 2011
First off, dont be put off by the title. I'm merely saying that this band are really about to blow up and hit the big time. So I hope they can keep their feet on the ground.
My reason behind this statement?
Simply because this album is an amazing follow up to Guaranteed to Disagree. The band have made the right choice to do a completely new album, some bands like to re-hash songs from E.P's and shove them on a debut. But We Are The In Crowd are not just some band.
They draw comparisons with Paramore because of their melodic female vocalist, but to be honest, they dont sound anything like Paramore. I'm merely saying that they do so much differently to Paramore. The dual vocals, that capture and intrigue the listener, that make you want to learn the words and sing along. It is this vocal partnership that really puts this band on a different path to Paramore. Another reason, is that this band sound so much more like pop-punk. Think, All Time Low, The Maine, Cute Is What We Aim For, e.t.c
These bands dont use guitars for massive rock effect, they use them for harmonies and melodies. Which, for the songs that We Are The In Crowd have on this album, work extremely well.
The songs in question are full of energy and seem to be trying to reach out and grab the audience. It works.
From the catchy as hell Rumor Mill, to the slowed down and musically awesome All or Nothing. This whole album flows well and is musically tight.
So in my opinion, you should get the album if you've got Guaranteed to Disagree, but also, you should get this album anyway, they make for great driving music and also singalong-at-the-top-of-your-lungs music.
