School Boy Humor - Camera Shy But Still A Star EP

School Boy Humor - Camera Shy But Still A Star EP
Record Label: Vagrant Records
Release Date: November 4, 2008

Who?

Recent Vagrant Records signees with their digital only debut EP, Camera Shy But Still A Star. The band hails from Little Rock, Arkansas where they've built up a strong following.

How is it?

Two words: very good. The band gives their listeners a nice mix of songs on the EP. Additionally, the band is able to get you instantly hooked in just a short time. The opener to the EP, "Camera Shy," just screams 'hit.' It's an incredibly catchy track with a chorus that's almost impossible to ignore. Hopefully School Boy Humor has big plans for this track because alone, it's enough to make this band huge. The remaining songs, "Cheating Myself" and "Everyone Who Breathes," do an excellent job maintaining the momentum set forth by the opener. After a few listens, the vocals from Phil Evans begin to standout as one of the more impressive features of this release. If you enjoy cover songs, "Realize" (originally by Colbie Caillat) is just as great and equally as catchy as the other songs on Camera Shy But Still A Star. If you're desperately seeking that band to get into before everyone else does, consider this your notice

Best Interest had an album of the exact same title. Not sure if it was released, though.

good review, but these guys sound just like every other band trying to make it big right now. i'm kind of disappointed that Vagrant would sign these guys. they're a much better label than that, but i guess you have to pay the bills somehow.

There is a band called Best Interest that put out a cd called "Camera Shy But Still A Star" on 2005, so please change the name of your EP
