The Prospect - America
Record Label: None
Release Date: December 27, 2007
An up and rising pop punk band hailing from the small beach town of Brandenton, Florida. Although they are from a small town along the west coast of Florida, The Prospect is making quite a splash all over the country.
How is it?
The rather short EP entitled America is fairly impressive. The Prospect takes influences from the pop punk, indie, and mixes it all together. Risky? Not with this band; each song on America has a different sound to it.
"America" displays the pop element of The Prospect, while "Curator" show the sensitive side, and "Horseshoes and Handgrenades" displays the heaviest part of The Prospect. "You've Got Red On You" displays everything The Prospect has to offer, including outstanding vocals and great instrumentation; it is the best track on the EP.
America is a great EP from beginning to end, although it is rather short. But with the different styles of each song, its hard to say which direction they'll end up going. Anyway they go, it won't be disappointing.
These guys are super nice and put on a great show. I'm from the area and get to see these guys perform fairly often. They are a hard working band and it shows in the new music they are always playing for us. Can't wait to hear more recordings.
I think you can buy the EP on their MySpace, or get it from iTunes. Do it. It's worth it.
aww! i love The Prospect!! they are soo nice!
first We The Kings. now The Prospect. i'm soo glad that i live right outside of Bradenton!! =D
it was actually funny, i first met Adam(bassist) and Billy(singer/guitar) after a We The Kings show in Tampa at Tropicana Field. they were both really nice. i didn't meet the rest of the band until an acoustic Hot Topic show in Bradenton a few months later.
This band has what it takes to get to the top! Everything from SoCo piano, to Thrice-type palm muting and A7X leads! The Prospect will not disappoint you, pop in their CD and go on the musical journey these talented musicians will lead you on.
