Poughkeepsie, New York's own pop-punk purveyors We Are the In Crowd, make their Hopeless Records debut with the Guaranteed to Disagree EP. Produced by Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount (Jimmy Eat World, All Time Low, Cartel), the EP highlights the hook-laden vocal interplay of powerful lead singer Taylor Jardine backed by the curt-voiced guitarist Jordan Eckes, who spend most of the record dueling in verses, finishing each other's lyrical sentences, and weaving harmonies, an approach that immediately sets them apart from their musical peers. Thematically, the EP is concerned with the struggles of young adulthood, from not compromising personality to win a crush's affections ("Never Be What You Want") to cutting through the haze of gossip ("Lights Out"), to taking a backstabbing so-called friend to task ("For the Win"). Delivered with quirky, tongue-in-cheek lyrics and instrumentation more focused on synth than guitar, Guaranteed to Disagree is slick, sweet, and fresh.

If you are a fan of Paramore, plan on becoming a fan of this band as well. They have some great potential to come up with some catchy songs in the future. This is a pretty good cd for a new up and coming band!
