Let’s review the facts shall we? Acceptance ran the major label gauntlet and didn’t make it out the other end, in fact, I think it’s fair to say they were royally fucked by everyone involved, while Saosin have proven (on more than occasion) that they can’t cut it live. Thankfully we have There For Tomorrow, a young group who have take the best elements of the aforementioned bands and churned out a solid seven-song debut. 

Backed by a solid production job courtesy of James Paul Wisner (Underoath, Dahsboard Confessional, The Getaway Plan), There For Tomorrow have ticked all the right boxes to make their way onto the bedroom walls of every fourteen year old in the US. Sure, it’s not the most original EP you’ll hear this year, but the combination of quality song-writing and a gifted vocalist is going to ensure TFT build themselves any army of fans over the next twelve months. 

The chorus on “Deadlines” is a sure fire hit in anyone’s book, while the stop/start riffing of “Pages” is as catchy as anything Anberlin are doing at the moment, not to mention the consistently impressive lead guitar work that makes itself heard throughout the entire seven-track affair. 

Conclusion

As I mentioned earlier, There For Tomorrow are far from being the most unique band doing the rounds at the moment, however their knack for writing intricate yet instantly engaging pop songs should see them develop their own sound in due time. Watch this space.
