You & What Army
With influences from the British Invasion, the song craft of Motown and the attitude of Modern Rock, The Pounders create a sound all of their own; unique and unmistakable. The Pounders combination of driving guitars, punchy drums and flourishes of keyboards punctuate vocal hooks and harmonies, while making the music original and accessible. Their keen sense for crafting memorable songs with click-bang arrangements shows off their Detroit roots and the spirit that inspired so many great bands around the world, from Tom Petty to Elvis Costello, The Killers to XTC. The Pounders' debut CD, "You And What Army", crackles with energy, depth and emotion. The lead track, "Merry Go Round" portrays life trying to keep up with the world, while "Paperboy" expresses a more innocent time. The track "Over That" addresses failed relationships we can all relate to, while the darker sounding "Pollyanna" touches raw sentiment. Additional tracks, like "Miles Away", "Inside Out", "Weatherman" and "Dying to Know" tell stories all their own that invite the listener into the music. With eleven diverse tracks, "You And What Army" takes you on an emotional journey seen through The Pounders eyes. Enjoy the ride!
