I declare this to be emo week. The pants are tight, the eyes are linered, and the songs are about girls, girls, girls.
Oh, and angst.
Track 1: So Obvious
Artist: Runner Runner
Sounds Like: Metro Station, Amber Pacific, Yellowcard
More: Saw these guys opening for Fall Out Boy a couple months ago — all the high school girls in trucker caps were singing this at the top of their lungs… I only said that so you’d feel self-conscious when you catch yourself singing along. You’re welcome.
Track 2: Detroit Was Built On Secrets (pro tip: wait for the chorus)
Artist: Search The City
Sounds Like: Anberlin, We The Kings, All Time Low
More: Even when an emo song sounds like its not about a girl, it’s about a girl. Remember that. It’s really one of the only immutable laws of emo: Thy music shalt be about girls and girls alone… and the snugness of thy jeans shalt be inversely proportional to the depth of thy voice.
