We interviewed them for the next T&N Podcast that should be coming pretty soon.

its got the T&N stamp of approval which means good. crazy how branding can influence opinions of a product.

Yep. Good, but I can't see much staying power.

Saosin still did this sound better. S/t>>>Great White Whale>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> ISOSG

EDIT: Shit meant to quote someone else!
But I agree with you on the lyric front.

You would say that; they're on your label! Haha.

This.

Also, I find them to be much better than Saosin, but yes, the style of music is similar.

Thank you.

And to all you people who say Saosin does this better, I actually disagree. Secret and Whisper have a different sound and are on their own planet with it, I would say. They're faster and more melodic and ambient.

As for you lyric-haters, sometimes simple lyrics are just as effective as eloquent ones with flowery language. I admire Adam Young (Owl City) for his simplicity and limericky cleverness just as much as I admire Kevin Matisyn (Evans Blue, Parabelle) for his eloquence and emotional depth.

Sounds great. I'm so excited for this record.

Yeah some of his lyrics are odd but I think their music is powerful and with the intensity Charles brings, those lyrics have to mean something.

Can we stop with the saosin comparisons

Cheesus 03/31/10 03:53 PM

Great White Whale pt.2, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Jake Jenkins 03/31/10 03:56 PM

I'm so excited for this album, this song is awesome, as are all the other released songs so far.

Saosin w/Ant > Secret & Whisper > Saosin w/Cove > Stutterwho?

Definitely my favorite song of the ones I've heard so far. Yeah the lyrics are strange on this one, but for me their appeal is in the music and the awesome vocals. Charles can belt!
