Short Stack - Electric Romantics

"I'm killing romance in the name of love"

While Mcfly have been working on their new sci-fi oriented sound, another youthful pop/punk band may have beaten them to it. This band is Australia's Short Stack, and they are now officially amazing. They weren't amazing on their debut album (well, maybe a couple of songs were...), but they've shifted from trendy radio rock to something more symphonic. Grander, bigger. their new single Planets (first from the upcoming album) is a fantastic jump in quality, and well worth checking out. But it's this track, one of the b-sides on the EP, that has me buzzing about the album. I love everything about it. The rollicking guitar, the anthemic chorus, and the where-will-they-go-next verses. In a way, it sounds like something Green Day would've come up with for American Idiot, though it's definitely on the "pop" side of rock. I am officially obsessed, now. Sometimes it only takes one song.
