Music To My Ears

Show Me The Skyline                                                                                
Rumor Has It
November 14, 2009

Rumor has it that this album is a must have. Seventeen year old Larzz and the gang have done it again, with their second EP release Rumor Has It. The whole album features songs of your typical "boy falls in love with girl", etc etc. However, Show Me The Skyline doesn't just follow in the footsteps of other bands. Every one of their songs are about real problems, that REAL people have, and you can tell they are from the heart.

The first track titled "May" blew me away, and I immediately noticed that they dropped some of their synth heavy sound from their first EP Rain Or Shine. It then follows up with four more heavy hitting songs and a suprisingly well done acoustic version of "May." "Legs Tangled" perked my interest, especially with its catchy chorus and well synced riffs. At first glance, I saw the acoustic version of "May" and figured it would be simply mediocre. I really could not have been more wrong, it's simply amazing.

Some of the bands biggest influences come from Paramore, Blink 182, and The Starting Line. If you like those guys, then you will surely love to show your friends this album.

If you haven't heard of Show Me The Skyline before, you should definitely take a listen. They're a pop/rock band with killer choruses and vocals that will make your head spin.
