Not many albums now-a-days make you feel happy-go-lucky after giving
them a listen. Especially in the genre of Alternative, Punk or even
Emo. Instead, there are feelings of anger, rage, or even sadness.
However, after giving the newest release from Echo Screen a

Perhaps that's why they named this album Euphoria, which by
definition means basically being happy or elated. On this CD their
Powerpop-ness shines through with youthful melodies, just right hooks

When you pop in their CD right away you're hit with their first single
"This Letter Bomb." With a video to accompany, the song

or "Rushmore." Two songs bursting with energy and ones I'd
be very interested to see what shows up in their videos. I'm sure
they'll make me happy.
