April will be a huge month for me. The day I finally turn eighteen will be in that pleasant month. So of course, a band called The April Year has to be solid. And solid they are. The April Year knows how to make mid tempo keys laden pop music. What does The First Time In Forever sound like? Imagine what A Rocket To The Moon would be if Justin helped them write Brightenesque songs or the stronger tracks by The Maine. "Through Hell And High Hopes" is extremely reminiscent of the best songs from The Maine's Can't Stop Won't Stop, and is a perfect song to put on while in the car with the girl you are interested in. This is the kind of music you blast when you're alone and don't care what anyone thinks of you. We all need that fun little pop band that can bring a smile to our faces.
