We find Minneapolis based band This World Fair somewhere between Ben Folds charming piano pop and Coldplay atmospheric pop. Their latest 5 track EP "So is death and love" is a real nice affair of memorable songs that will make any cloudy day become sunny and warm. My favorite "Waiting for you" both flirts with Maroon 5 as well Ben Folds while the romantic opening track "Amy" and the uptempo britpop sounding "Drama" pays a visit in Coldplay land. The modern rocker "Chance" has more of a Jimmy Eat World meeting Abandoned Pools sound over it,great track! The EP closes with the ballad "Silicone" that slowly but steady grows each time I listen to it,the Travis influences shine through on this one. Great EP!
Taking Back Sunday is named after a song by Long Island band The Waiting Process who were inspired by their grandmother, Tina, that they should take back Sunday from the Christian people in Long Island.
