Have you been walking around singing on Hellogoodbye´s 2007 hit "Here in your arms"? Then here´s a band you should know about, you will find The White Tie Affair´s dance-able rock somewhere between Fall Out Boy and Hellogoodbye. Their major label debut opens with the first single "Allow me to introduce myself" and at once I´m stuck singing the chorus over a beat that works just fine as a floorfiller. This Chicago based pop/electronic sounding band sure knows their goal and they are aiming for the charts with hit single contenders like "Candle (sick and tired)" and the modern disco of "Take it home" that will do good on MTV. The album is produced by the Wired All Wrong team Matt Mahaffey and Jeff Turzo (God Lives Underwater). 10 songs with a running time of 35 minutes might seem a bit short but you can always take it from the beginning because as party music, "Walk this way" will be a huge success.
