Accoustic side project from awesome pop punk band anyone?
Following in the tradition of unique pop-punk vocalists before him, John Floreani has taken time away from fronting the ever popular Trophy Eyes to release a solo acoustic EP titled ‘Terrace’ under the moniker of ‘Little Brother’. Now..Trophy Eyes are a damn good band and bring a great energy to the stage but when you listen to their recordings its John’s voice that really sells it. This release is showcasing that element 100% and stripping away all the cool riffs, drums and punk energy give’s a really contrasting view to what’s unique about both John and Trophy Eyes. His story telling and honesty are full frontal and you can not deny that this guy wears his heart on his sleeve.
This is a one guy – one guitar kind of recording, not unlike Chuck Ragan’s (Hot Water Music) or even Matt Kerek’s (Citizen) solo stuff. It comes across authentic and sincere and for that fact alone you should give this 15 minutes of your time. Such things are a rarity these days.
Grab it for a dollar ..or pay what you want via bandcamp:
FFO: Trophy Eyes (duh), Chuck Ragan, Citizen, Make Do and Mend, Pentimento
