"Major Major Record Review"

They’re a local grand, alterna-pop group that has come from out of nowhere with a sound that’s just quirky enough for indie rock fans and also highly marketable. Their upcoming debut albumrecorded and produced by local Lars Goransson arrives soon, and if they play their cards right the group will be set for certain heat-seeker status. Soaring vocals hijack the focal point of many of the songs with their sometimes Muse-esque method, and spacey keyboards fill out the five-piece rock sound nicely.

One of (the records) stand-out tracks is “No Rhyme,” which features plenty of those vocals soaring above our heads in higher pitches equipped with stylized quakes and shakes. A steady, danceable beat thumps as plinky guitars chime along with the lyrics sung. “Everybody Wants To” feels a little closer to the digital age with its keys resembling robot backup vocals rising above the song’s super-solid structure. The final track on the album, “Undone,” ends things with a lament from behind a piano which rises into a passionate arrangement and bows out gracefully.

Bio

Jason spent two years writing the tunes. Started jamming with fellow guitarist Dave, a co-worker on a supercomputer project they built for the University of Texas. Jason called Craig, who said, "man I'm not playing in bands anymore; musicians suck and they smell bad" to which Jason said, "just try one rehearsal" after which Craig said, "Damn, this $%^& rocks, I'm in." Craig then brought in Dayton, Ohio phenoms Phatts McNatt (Jordan and Scott) on bass and drums and the band has been hitting ever since.

Major Major worked with renowned rock producer Lars Goransson on this debut record. Goransson who's worked with Jason on previous bands (The Family, Dope Syndicate) pushed the band in the studio and caught a brilliant set of tunes in three days of tracking. The finished result has been compared to The Killers, David Bowie, Talking Heads among others.
