ATTENTION: Another Year: 7″

It’s funny. When I first heard this band, I was like, “Oh, another one of these bands,” but then I couldn’t really think of any direct comparisons. Sure, musically, Attention channels Can’t Slow Down/Through Being Cool-era Saves The Day, but Glenn’s vocals are a far cry from Chris Conley’s nasally sugar pop. There’s more in common with Gunmoll or fellow Canadians Barrier here, maybe with even more hardcore influence in the vocals (dare I say there’s a touch of Vogelism in the delivery?!). Anyway, really catchy, dance-and-singalong stuff here. Looking forward to a full-length. Rad.
