Artist discography


This Conyers, Georgia-based band has had an exciting and interesting musical journey with albums on The Militia Group, Epic Records and now on Wind-Up Records. And think also that they have delivered each time it is pleased that these labels has the same taste as me and believe in this energetic band. As previously they have created a blend of modern rock, power pop and a nice dose of punk / pop. Think the last self-titled album on Epic was somewhat tame and too much pop-oriented compared to her debut, "Chroma". But on this new album "Cycles" they have really found their home again and offer beautiful melodies, choruses, which sits directly packed in a suitable production. And really think this is their best album so far with better material than before with a handful of killer tunes. Perhaps this has to do with that they had a wide range before they went into the studio and didn’t write during that session. Perhaps it has to do with that Wind-Up gave them more freedom than before? This isn’t that important then since we got a very neat and well-made modern rock disc that is too good to be missed. Check out!
