This and "Hey Mario" sound nothing alike, which isn't making me more optimistic...
I just really really want this album to be as solid as we all know it can be, and releasing the joke song first was maybe a misstep.

The harmonies are an interesting route though - I'm sure a lot of people will say this sounds like an attempt to rip off the punch that "Some Nights" accomplished, but I don't get that vibe too much.

Edit: Also, I'm glad I never have to submit this band's stuff because you're so on top of it

Actually this song was released 1st, just not on here. If you are a backer of their PledgeMusic (as I am), we got a glimpse of this one before "Hey Mario"

"Hey Mario" was also released publicly on YouTube first -- I know the pledge people got the intro last week, but a fan exclusive isn't a release.

Edit - Also regardless, I was speaking more in terms of the rest of the album. "Hey Mario" is still the only full song out there, and the comments in the AP thread about it are indication enough of how it's been received. I feel like they've handcuffed themselves to the silly aspects of their music, and it's been a major reason why they never exploded into wider prominence.

They're on a tier, success-wise, that I don't even know how to define. It's like they're pressed up against the glass ceiling but don't have anything to smash it with.

This pretty much sums up my feelings as of late for this band perfectly.

The first single "Let Go" should be the hammer needed to smash through the glass.

gimme!

And can we expect a US run or at least some release shows when the band's back from the Europe or will we need to wait a bit?

These songs sound pretty great. This really could be what breaks them through! "Let Go" sounds like something radio could pick up easily.

And I agree with TheDemosRock, I think releasing the "silliest" song on the album as the first taste was a super odd move and gave a weird impression to a lot of people. I enjoy it, however.

I'd download it once it dropped. I like the vibe.

I was looking forward to this until now. Not feeling these clips at all, but I'll wait to hear the full thing.
