American Classic

For those that miss the indelible effervescence of Washington State's Acceptance should find plenty to love in the New Jersey band American Classic. Shimmering guitars, crystalline vocals, glossy production and titanic choruses are the hallmarks of this extremely auspicious quartet. Everything about their EP Life Is Motion, screams major label status, radio airplay and magazine covers.

These are the kinds of songs that struggling musicians the world over dream of writing. Should-be radio smash "As Mine," is the easiest example and proof of this band's burgeoning starpower. On the urgent and splashy "Age of Reason," the band chases down the power-pop firepower of Boys Like Girls and Cartel. Produced by James Paul Wisner, Life in Motion has a swagger and professionalism that catapults them ahead of their peers and into the national consciousness.

Sure it might be a bit derivative, it might be a bit cookie-cutter, but when it sounds this good, it's far too hard to ignore.

American Classic is Brian Eckert: guitar
Chris Santos: vocals, guitar
Andy Longo: bass
Henry Neto: drums
