Coming to us soon from Hidden Volume Records is the new EP” There is a Reason” from Brooklyn’s own , The Above. From the opening track “Holding Back” it’s quite apparent that The Above are staking their claim to being one of the coolest bands ,of 2016. When you play The Above you hear the history of the British Invasion . ” I Wanna Take Her Home” will have you shaking your head in total excitement. The Kinks themselves would be impressed. ” I just Can’t Forget About That Girl” will convince you that you are hearing something from an American Band that hasn’t been accomplished since the days of ‘The Rascals” and early “Byrds” . “Say Your Cool” just flows so easily that you will be singing along halfway through and the killer guitar licks will assure you that you are hearing something worth telling your friends about. Up Next is the title Track ‘ There is a Reason” I’m picking up a little Steve Winwood around the time of Traffic and that’s about as impressed as I’ve been in the 3 years we have been reviewing and talking to bands. “You Look Unwell” closes out this excellent EP , with a rocking tune leaving you with one undeniable fact…The Above are able to assimilate some of the greats that have come before into a sound that is uniquely their own.With this new EP from Hidden Volume Records The Above are proudly proclaiming , The Kids Are Alright….
on a personal note: I want to thank Scott from Hidden Volume Records for giving me the opportunity to listen to “There is a Reason” before it has been released. And I highly encourage all of you to head over to Hidden Volume Records and check out all the cool tunes they have up on the web….
