I Call Fives’ recently released EP, “Someone That’s Not You,” proves that pop punk is alive and well in New Jersey. Infectious melodies and thundering instruments promise to bring the scene to a crescendo, a fact which begs the question, “How are these guys not in the music major leagues yet?”
Someone That’s Not You, is the call to arms the war-front— the stages across the nation— needed. Show-goers, the foot soldiers along the front lines, the stage barriers, and the infantryman in the trenches, more commonly known as M.O.S.H. pits, can now rally behind an anthem worth moving to. The war to defend pop punk, commanded by the likes of Jersey-born The Wonder Years and Man Overboard, is in full effect and, with the recent release of Someone That’s Not You, which has already garnered positive reviews, it’s safe to say that I Call Fives will quickly rise through the ranks. A salute to the Washington Township quintet, who are managed by Buddy Nielsen, front man of Senses Fail, another Jersey-based band, for doing the Garden State proud.
