Capitol Records over the years has signed huge artists like: Coldplay,
Radiohead, and Red Hot Chili Peppers who together have
sold millions of records and played thousands of shows. So, needless
to say, their standards are pretty high when it comes to signing a
brand new artist that no one has ever heard of. In the case of End
Of Fashion, it's pretty evident why Capitol took a chance on this
To have your debut album released on a record label means you have
talent, to have that album released on a major label, well... that's
just remarkable. End Of Fashion have traveled over here from their
home in Australia to be unveiled to the music industry like royalty.
What better way to start off your career?! These four guys have come
to show us how to have a good time and to rock out with some "powerpop".
Hmm, "powerpop" i.e.: a musical style that is characterized
by strong melodies, crisp vocal harmonies, and prominent guitar riffs.
Yep, that fits. This is a genre that's been around since the 1960s,
so to be placed with artists such as All-American Rejects,
The Dandy Warhols and, believe it or not, The Beatles
(yes, The Beatles), you've got a lot to live up to. But End Of Fashion
holds up their end just fine. In the first song "She's Love"
you already get that hint of Beatles influence, to then follow-up
with "O Yeah" you also get your taste of The Dandy Warhols.
There's even a tad amount of The Killers heard in "The
Game" and then back to The Beatles part way through with "Lock
Up Your Daughters". These are some songs that I can see my kids
This album is a cornucopia of power beats, infectious melodies, memorable
harmonies, and a sound that deserves to be categorized with some of
the greats. Capitol has done it again... what is their secret?
