Sing it Loud (cover)Ever since Epitaph was declared by Frank Turner as “a badge of quality that meant I would buy the record, regardless of what it was”, I’ve made sure since reading that that I pay extra close attention to the stuff they send me. Sing it Loud hail from Minneapolis, Minnesota and have some great tunes that sound like a cross between Jimmy Eat World, Farewell, Cute is What We Aim for and Blink 182, which is no surprise when we consider that their album, “Come Around” was produced by Motion City Soundtrack guitarist Josh Cain and mixed by Mark Trombino (who’s worked with both Jimmy Eat World and Blink 182)

It’s a strong album, with 11 tracks that just get your head bobbing up and down, some great stop-start pop punk that will no doubt be the toast of a whole host of teenage girls. The downside? Well, it’s nothing that bands haven’t done before – they’re either playing it safe, or are set to become another one-album wonder. Sure, they know what they’re doing, but frankly it’s paint by numbers pop-punk.

Our friends over at Winston’s Zen managed to get an interview with the guys the other week, which you can read if you want more info about the guys.

5/10
