Greetings From the Inner Circle Review

By: Gabe Straight, Music Journalist

Inner Circle Avenue’s family reunions must be this five-hour jam session, or at least that’s how I imagine it. Brother-sister-brother-friend combo Inner Circle Avenue from Blissfield, Missouri are almost a couple years removed from their last effort, entitled Greetings From the Inner Circle; the EP featuring the single “Goin’ Nowhere Fast,” which was recently made into a music video. Describing ICA’s music style doesn’t take a genius to figure out, but the band uses that to their advantage. This is a punk rock EP, and a good one at that. “Goin Nowhere Fast” is filled to the brim and doesn’t dare stop. The next track, “Main Attraction” follows a slightly funkier approach and adds a sense of variety in the EP I was happy to find as I was listening. The family band slows it down, but not too much on the previously recorded “Rewind.” “What Could Have Been” features some great vocals from drummer Allison Alexander, who’s vocal contribution gives me a hardcore Subways vibe, and I love The Subways. The EP continues on with “Big Dipper Boy” and concludes with the slow burner “Need More Time”.

 

This being a pop punk EP, the mix follows suit: big beefy drums, crunchy guitars, and an extremely present vocal track. And what would a pop punk band be without catchy melodic earworm melodies? You can bet they’re on here. “Goin’ Nowhere Fast” and “Rewind” have the catchiest hooks, but that doesn’t excuse “Big Dipper Boy” from having a catchy chorus.

 

Overall, I had a good time with Greetings From the Inner Circle. It’s fun, it’s catchy, and it’s well done. There were a couple hiccups here and there (I wasn’t a fan of the guitar solos, “Goin Nowhere Fast” was a little too tongue-in-cheek), but I am definitely keeping my ear to the ground with Inner Circle Avenue, and can’t wait to see what this brother-sister-brother-friend quartet have in store in the future.

 

Stay tuned for a full interview with vocalist,  Logan, by Nina.
