Someone Just Like You is on the outside looking in right now, but pretty soon they'll be part of the inner circle. They make fantastic pop-rock gems that are sure to stick with you for weeks at a time, but they're not over-produced and not too cheesy for anyone over the age of 15 to get into. These guys have come through my area several times and it's a bummer I couldn't make it out to see them, I definitely missed out on something special.

Channeling the pop roots of peers like All Time Low, Mayday Parade and the mass, they add a tinge of sincerity that can be found in bands like The Dangerous Summer and I Call Fives. "Hearts On Fire" is a song we all should be listening to: catchy hooks without an abuse of auto-tune, guitar riffs that don't feel like we've heard them 1000 times before and just the right amount of gusto to give the song the edge that separates it from the pack. With "One Floor Down," Aaron Parker and Jared Brown create an ambiance in the beginning reminiscent of Thieves and Villains. When the song picks up, it feels like Kenny Vasoli lent his songwriting abilities to write a song that will hold on to us for a long time ala "Somebody's Gonna Miss Us."

Call me nostalgic and crazy, but this band could be one of the forerunners to start the next pop-rock movement. They give off an aura that I get when I listen to many of the Drive-Thru Records bands. They pick up right where bands like The Years Gone By left off, let's just hope we don't let this band break up before they can reach their full potential.
