Young Hearts is the pop-punk band all the younger kids need to hear and all the older kids have been aching for. Catchy sung/shouted choruses abound, but this isn't your general Fall Out Boy-era "pop-punk." All four songs (the shortness of that number being my only major complaint) are solid, sim.

Young Hearts is the pop-punk band all the younger kids need to hear and all the older kids have been aching for. Catchy sung/shouted choruses abound, but this isn't your general Fall Out Boy-era "pop-punk."

All four songs (the shortness of that number being my only major complaint) are solid, similar in style but not to the point that it feels like one long song. The driving intros to both "Backs to It" and "Caught Up" leave you tapping your foot and singing along to lyrics that, while not amazing, are certainly reminiscent of Latterman (the vocal parts on "Carpe Nocturem" especially add to this comparison).

Overall, this is an excellent EP, with similarly excellent production quality for being self-released. Oh, and the best part: You can get it for free, though once you have listened through a few times you might be inclined to donate the suggested three dollars.

i ment to give this three stars... oops!

at least someone stated these dudes were in dear tonight... this is a really good ep... and plus it's free! Dear tonight was awesome, but I like this better. NY has some great shit coming out right now... a band called get bent plays this style of pop punk, only ten times better (their new demo is fuckin rad!)

This band has members who used to be in a band called Saturday Supercade. Amazing band.

If this will further any interest, two guys in this band are ex-members of Dear Tonight.
