Feeling a bit camera shy


Any accurate description of The Edgerton’s Pen Conspiracy should include the following words: rock n' roll. That said, the EPC capture a sound that is indeed rare. Mixing pop sensibility with indie credibility, their post-punk sound has been compared to that of Elvis Costello, The Cars, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, and even The Cure, but no amount of comparisons can really define this sound.
The EPC make real rock music that even your dad could sing along to. The music is pure and sharp and the lyrics raw and insightful. Frontman Sean McMillan writes tender songs about girls, then blasts them with enough raw guitar to convince himself it's still 1977. Meanwhile, bassist Froi is hammering out a contrapuntal hot funk sundae, proving that rock can be both clever and fun. His classically trained but all-too-rock style transforms songs like I Can't See Straight and Tired of Love from simple rock tunes into unforgettable bass anthems. Drummer Jimmy Beckmeyer falls into the groove of a song and stays there. His beats hit with Froi's bass like clockwork, ultimately delivering an energetic yet wonderfully simplistic sound that won't let you forget that this is, indeed, only rock n' roll.
