Alternative indie rock from a trio of high school guys from Irvine, CA who've been friends since kindergarten. "The brown boys," as they call themselves, have captured the emo rock sound perfectly. Psyched to hear what comes next from them!|

FCC on track 1
Recommended tracks: 1 (FCC!), 2, 5, 6
1. (5:11) FCC! "fuck." Masterful electric guitar with clear-toned male vox and energetic drums. I wanna dance! Play the shiyut out of this during safe harbor.
2. (3:31) Creepy music box chirps layered with good ol' electric guitar and drums. Mid- to uptempo.
3. (3:42) Super energetic guitar rocker! Modulated vocals à la Jack White with loud strumming culminating in a speedy solo.
4. (4:21) Acoustic base-heavy funky crooner. Mid- to uptempo with pained vocals.
5. (3:58) Back to the electric guitar, heavy on that hi-hat, lamenting about a seemingly unrequited love. Nice, calming guitar solo with 1 min to go that then picks up the pace (and the pitch).
6. (4:57) Emo vocals over a foot-tapping drumbeat and a fast, yet repetitive guitar line. Great reverb on the guitar around 3:30.
