Kicking things straight into gear with 'And Then' are The Famous Class who take their sound from bands like Blink 182 and New Found Glory which makes me dandy, and with a feeling like I got a bowl of chocolate pudding in my underpants - Life feels good!
While this is nothing new, The Famous Class add an undeniable touch of class (pun intended) to proceedings. You can imagine these songs playing in the background in the latest installment of the 'American Pie' films. People tend to view these kind of bands as less then special but to me they mean everything, as they may appear dumb and catchy but they put a spring in my step and a smile on my face... and to anyone who says otherwise - "Well, la di fricken da!"
Every song on this 5 track EP is great - I honestly cannot pick out one that is better than the others! 'Emily', 'Never See The Night', 'Jesse' and 'Losing The Game' burst onto the stereo with unending enthusiasm and infectious melodies that Make rather than Break! It's a shame that the band couldn't have joined the recent All Time Low or YouMeAtSix tours as this band would have gone down a storm!
Which leads me to my biggest surprise when I check out the band on t'internet - they're only from LONDON!!!!!!!!! Wow, I wasn't expecting that! I love this band! They are the next in line to the pop punk/rock throne! Kinda like the Princes of pop punk/rock, if you will!
What I love about this band is their pride in having 100% control over every aspect of the band - from writing the music, to designing their own CD packaging and T-Shirts. Please check out their video for the track 'Emily'... You'll love it!
