Busy day planned for today, hopefully two more articles up by the end of the day.
And Then There Were None - Right Here Waiting. This is one band not very many people know, and I can kind of see why. If you listen to them they seem techno, and they are. However, they aren't like any other techno band I have ever heard. I have to hand it to Tooth and Nail for finding this band. They used to be a metalcore band before totally reinventing themselves. Now they're alternative with europop beats. That's how I describe them. If someone else has a better way tell me. Cause that's the best I can do. The song is a remake of Richard Marx's 1989 ballad. It's another of those songs that lots of people can recognize but do not know the artist or anything other than the chorus. The cover has an extremely different style. The cover is far more upbeat and definitely a dance song. You can check them out on myspace HERE.
School Boy Humor - Realize. This powerpop band is starting to become big. One of their songs was even (sadly) top thirty on Radio Disney. However, they aren't the usual disney band. Their cover of Colbie Caillat's Realize shows their true style. Similar to bands such as The Friday Night Boys and Artist Vs. Poet, most of their songs are upbeat and exciting, something the original isn't. The cover is a whole minute shorter than the original. However, that is not a bad thing. This song could easily pull for an original. I think they unlocked the true potential of this song for powerpop. You can check them out on Myspace HERE.
