That sense of raw energy and playfulness abounds on its 2008 debut, UNDERDOG ALMA MATER. The Orlando, Florida based six-piece peppers its fast-paced emo-flecked power pop with spiraling keyboards and sing-a-long choruses for a sort of 80s grandeur. Frontman Jonathan Cook's vocals lilt longingly a la Pete Wentz whether flailing against disparity on "Whoa Oh!" or poetically recalling a long-ago friend on "Hey Brittany."
