Biography

And so we come to The Title, five young men from Hoboken/High Point, New Jersey set to make a mark on the scene with their “get up and dance” attitude and their undoubtedly catchy brand of electronica power-pop on their debut album, Making a Scene. When starting to listen to any one of their songs, it’s instantly recognizable that these men have an ear for infectious melodies and catchy choruses. The thing that brings this entire package to a close is the excessive use of auto-tune. Lead singer Nick Esposito uses the tool almost perfectly; he isn’t using it to make his voice better, but to add an effect to his music. That is the right way to pull off auto-tune: for sheer effect, not for corrections.

Although some of the band’s songs come off as a bit morose in their lyrics, such as in “The Last Song” where Nick Esposito sings “You sleep with your heart broken / Both eyes shut and no words spoken.” These lyrics normally come off as the beginning of a bad Good Charlotte song, but due to the electronic glitches and the dancey rhythms, it’s hard to feel sad when the music feels so good.

This is where the band’s greatest strength comes into play: every single song on the album feels good; you can’t help but smile, or feel like singing along to the catchy sounds the record presents. This band has created the best summer-listening album possible, where every song makes you feel upbeat, and doesn’t let you feel like coming down. Something also impressive about the album is the quality of production: even though it was a self-produced album, Making a Scene sounds as if it was done in a large professional studio paid for by a major label.
