Paper Rival plays indie-rock, are from Tennessee and were formerly known as Keating. From that brief description some might listen, others will not. However, I’m here to tell you that there is no hint of country and they’re not the band from Canada with a name change. This is their debut EP off Photo Finish Records with 5 tracks of CIRCA SURVIVE meets ADAM LAZZARA vocals. The first song, Ã¢â‚¬Å“AlabamaÃ¢â‚¬, is my favorite off the EP because the song carries a mellow tone through out the song and sets the mood for the rest of the cd. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Home is Right Out Your WindowÃ¢â‚¬ is another track I enjoyed both musically and lyrically. You can’t resist singing “Maybe I’ve been a bad little boy” with them, it just has a sweet ring to it. Just in case you were wondering about the Adam Lazzara reference, listen to Ã¢â‚¬Å“A Fox in the GardenÃ¢â‚¬. The EP then ends with Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pacing the CageÃ¢â‚¬, a song where an audience can join their hand clapping at a show. Overall, a great cd to listen and sing along from start to ending.
