Apparently, Connecticut pop punk/rock band Moving Brooklyn are set for big things in 2014, so let’s see why. For starters, their latest E.P, ‘Intervals’, was recorded and produced at the New York Nada Studios, where the likes of My Chemical Romance and We Are The In Crowd have made some great work; this can only mean good things.
‘Intervals’, produced by John Naclerio, features six impressive punk rock tracks; each one brings with it that classic pop-punk sound any fan of the genre would look for and more.
The band debuted in 2012 at the Vans Warped Tour Battle of the Bands, where they claimed first place, ultimately securing a slot on the Connecticut date of the tour. From here, they began making a name for themselves within the Connecticut music scene.
Moving Brooklyn take influences from the likes of Northlane and Taking Back Sunday, with rich guitar undertones and tight drum beats that flow nicely throughout the E.P. I don’t think ‘Intervals’ is the best album lyrically though, as the tracks observe the art of growing up, teamed with the superficial teen struggles that every other all-male pop punk band tend to sing about. I found it a little repetitive.
Overall, however, I think the album is well put together and Moving Brooklyn may very well be the next pop punk band to watch out for.
