The inhabitants of North Carolina stand as the latest casualty of cyclone trends. The search label parties have been sent in to evacuate all the generic survivors, as the rest fear any left over genres will stay buried beneath the rubble. Ground zero known as Charlotte is the most devastated area hit by the impact. Fortunately, Queen City saviors We Shout Goodnight rose out of the ashes to carry the torch for the nearly depleted pop punk colony. Speak For Yourself serves as the solidification that the band refuses to go quietly into the night. It comes as no surprise how ace this outfit’s abnormal growth is bound by influential inner workings.
Channeling the aura of their idols, the boys have set a lasting impression in a sea of competitors. The meticulous awareness has made founding members Zack Deaton and Virgil Maralit determined to recruit an all-star cast of aptitude that has already landed them spots playing along side the likes of Cartel. Coming off a massive victory in a countrywide battle of the bands, the next necessary obstacle was to spread their music to the rest of the world. The fun filled adventure takes shape as the members are briefly heard in the studio discussing how to open up the show. Instantly ‘Just Getting Started’ launches into an ode to the road with a first taste of the exceptional pipes of vocalist Sean Helman.
The sites and sounds of the busy boulevard will be there to remind me
The road is my drive way, the stage is my home
The crowds a party on a Friday night and my second microphone
Cause this is who we are and were just getting started
Cause this who we are and we're not going anywhere
Matched carefully with an envious production, the performances are backed up no matter how they’re revealed. The five unconsumed tracks glide down smoothly with a replay value that is oblivious to blocked barriers. The deliberations travel ahead at gifted pitches that offer a close connection and makes the observant not only feel the catchiness but likewise on an emotional level. The instant radio friendly smash, ‘Stuck On You,’ adheres to multiple aspects of the bands capabilities to transfer to mainstream success you'd think would take years to gain.
That underlining goal encased within this EP unquestionably scores on "Matches." Summoning Set Your Goals uplifting presence, the jam is as crafty as the confident vocals that call out all those naysayers in your path. It would be a sore understatement to declare each individual member encourages one another to up the ante in every rhythmic puzzle piece that fits in impeccable order. In merely six tracks that offer every avenue one could stroll on, it’s a job well done to say the least.
We Shout Goodnight’s substance is certainly empowered by their heartfelt enjoyment to be able to do what they love the most. The head-drilling choruses will naturally have you subconsciously humming with their instrumentally glossed demeanor. Speak For Yourself serves as an all-purpose record with a foundation that sturdily supports itself in countless social settings. It’s far too early in the game to tell if this rambunctious gang of hooligans has what it takes to enlist in the “save pop punk” military but they’re doing their part in pouring that prowess into bettering their local scene with some diversity for a change.
