"Keep an Eye on Sorry"

The new power trios never get too bogged down with the traditional concepts of sonic power. From the Police to Nirvana to Nada Surf, the redefinition of the power trio finds the dynamism in the spaces between the instruments, in the exploration of seemingly conflicting genres and styles.

That’s certainly true of Auburn WA power trio, Sorry. Comprising of the Brozovich brothers (Alan and Stephen) on guitars, basses and vocals with Derek Butcher on drums, Sorry colasce open chords, odd time signatures, fragile melodies and fractured thoughts into emotional highs, percussive conundrums and subtle violence.

Deceptively simple and straightforward, their press release comparisons with the Posies and Hang Ups belie the intensity and depth of their craft. The interplay between strings and voices showcases the genetic sibling harmonics that builds up each track into a crescendo of grace and beauty.

The ambience moves from the insistent jazz strokes of Autobiography, the jaunty whip shots of Bicycle, the gorgeous folk strains of Set Sail to the sinister menace of Autopilot. Considering the tracks, by and large, sound like live recordings, the fact that the songs never come across the same way is an astounding achievement.

I absolutely love the way Sorry weaves diverse strands of post-punk, twee, powerpop and indie rock into a pleasing multicoloured quilt. This is a band to keep a firm eye (and ear) on.

"It Pays to Pay Attention - Seattle Powerpop review"

Let it be known that I dig this record a lot. It's not particularly timely of me to say so, since it was released in December 2006 (I think). But, I can't concern myself with being timely right now. Did anyone review this record when it came out? If so, how the heck did I miss it? And why can't I find anything other than a single review on indiepages.com when I google? Perhaps you've simply cursed yourself with a band name that cannot be easily googled?

Anyway, guys, if no one reviewed your record when it came out, you were robbed and its their loss, because you have contributed to the world a 1.2 mm thick polycarbonate disc that is truly a pleasant pop experience.

Sorry seems to have a Bellingham pop fetish. They include The Posies, The Pale Pacific, Death Cab and Dolour as among their favorite bands, and I can hear pieces of these groups in what their doing. But, they don't sound derivative or lacking in creativity. To my ears they sound like a band raised on equal parts powerpop (the Posies, Teenage Fanclub) and indiepop (Versus, True Love Always, the Lucksmiths). A good example of that is their song Orange Balloon.

They have some of the arrangements and chord structures of the latter, but some of the crunch and "oomph" of the former. I wonder if because they have a foot in each of these camps neither has really adopted them as their own? Hard to say. But, all and all, Sorry is melodic and harmony driven and really darn good. I'm definitely looking forward to having them on my radar more frequently in the future.

I dont know how I missed you when this was released in 2006. But, I'm sorry (...ahem) to have done so. Heck, for that matter I'm sorry for having not heard of you guys, even though you've been at it since, what, 2002? In any case, consider me your new champion. - Seattle Powerpop


"Beautiful example of power pop"

These boys play complex and thought provoking pop music. Their latest EP, RSVP, embraces sophisticated harmonies coupled with catchy, crunchy guitar hooks are nothing short of excellent! Sorry has certainly put their musical knowledge to good use in producing this beautiful example of power pop. - PowerPop Overdose - http://powerpopoverdose.blogspot.com/


"It Pays to Pay Attention - Indiepages Review"

I was crazy about their last EP, "Non-Winner", and have also seen a number of these songs performed live, so I already knew I would love this record ... beautifully written. With such strong songs, it would be nice to see this band get some recognition. - indiepages.com


"Worth a Spin for Sure"

Sorry (The band), plays a DIY styled lo-fi indie power pop with a plenty of sweet melodic guitar touches, a lot like The Shins or Death Cab for Cutie. They play around the Seattle area and if you listen to the compelling "Bicycle" you'll hear bits of Jon Auer with Paul Simon rhythms - you'll never even notice than each of these songs are four minutes or longer. I've only heard 3 of the songs here, but the moody reflection of "Autopilot" feels honest and not at all pretentious, along the lines of Ben Folds. Worth a spin on the ipod for sure. - http://www.powerpopaholic.com/


"Good Stuff Boys"

Three-piece power pop band Sorry hails from trendy, suburban Auburn, Washington. The press kit says “harmonies and tasteful distortion”, to which I’d add “an affinity for the early Death Cab sound, which isn’t a bad thing.” Good stuff, boys.

Bio

Sorry is an independent 3-piece power pop band from trendy, suburban Auburn, WA. 2/3 of Sorry have known each other since they were knee high, and 3/3 of Sorry played their first gig together at a high school talent show. Their current band Sorry sounds exactly like high school would if you went to high school in your 30’s.

Sorry is known for their trademark harmonies and tasteful distortion, crunchy powerpop with a gooey melodic center.
