Here is a band definitely worth checking out, if you’re looking for some new music to add to your playlist. Two Wounded Birds, has a great rock feel in their new song/video “To be Young”, with catchy lyrics and a sound that reminds me of The Clash mixed with The Killers, and a little bit of The Shins in there as well. If you like it grab the self titled album out now.

What a way to start my day, and yours as well. Honestly, it’s the first time for me hearing the upbeat, uplifting, melodic sounds of Fang Island. You know how I like to try to find the mother and father of a sound that is new to me, or better yet who they may have been influenced by (pretty much on the sound they make, and who it reminds me of. Well, we got another combo here… I would say in the new single, “Asunder”, from their upcoming album Major, sounds a little like some Shins on 4 cups of coffee, and for a sweetener have a little Killers flavor as well as for the creamer some Jimmy Eat World. This is a must check out song, and album… I guarantee that I will be picking it up (7/24), cuz this is again, some damn amazing feel-good rock band of our time.
