These Philadelphia pop-punk rockers return with their sophomore album and once again delve into teen angst and anxiety associated with coming of age in an overwhelming modern world.
Modern Baseball’s music is reminiscent of ‘90’s bands Weezer and Dashboard Confessional. Blending soaring electric guitar, especially impressive drumming and droning nasal vocals, the band brings the 90s into the modern era.
The introspective, self-obsessed and cynical songwriting produces songs everybody should be able to relate to from some point in their life, past or present.
The record shows a maturity and emotional side that leaves endless future options available. (JA)
