Thanks to Darcia and our friends at Soundwaves Reviews for this nice little piece they did on our record:
Seattle is a treasure trove of great music. The city has given us Ann and Nancy Wilson (Heart), Soundgarden, Pearl Jam, Candlebox, Foo Fighters, and Nirvana, just to name a few. And now a new band called SixTwoSeven explodes out of Seattle. SixTwoSeven’s vibe feels like alternative rock and grunge, with a dose of punk. If you mix Foo Fighters, Weezer and Green Day, you’d have something close to their sound, though you’d need to add a huge helping of originality because they are in no way a copycat band.
Back on August 5 SixTwoSeven released their debut EP, Some Other’s Day.
All of the tracks are great, but my favorite is One Single Night. I love the groove, which gets me bouncing around like I’m in a dance club, and the lyrics have me singing along oh so badly. Fortunately, only my dogs are present to witness this embarrassing event. Here’s the song. Press play and create your own crazy scene.
Then there’s Joshua’s Song, which has a punk groove and heartbreaking lyrics. The band’s founder Greg Bilderback wrote this song…
"after administering CPR to a young man on a four-wheeler who had been struck by several cars after zooming onto the highway. “He ended up dying in my arms on the side of the road while we waited for the paramedics,” Bilderback says. “I wrote a whole song about it. It was the only way I could process the experience.”
SixTwoSeven began with Greg Bilderback, a dream, and a lot of hard work. He writes intense lyrics to express bottled up emotions, then shares them in a way in which we can all relate.
