Few bands come so ready-made for television placement as There for Tomorrow. A perfect mix of neo-rock, indie pop, and punk, the group's eponymous EP demands attention...and inclusion in the soundtrack of any nighttime teen soap you can name. So much so listeners will be forgiven for thinking they've heard these numbers before...weren't they played on Dawson's Creek
last month? Nope, but it's pretty much guaranteed they will be, because TFT have the sound down to a T. You know what I mean: the big, thundering guitars that slide into brighter pop, the dramatic shifts between quieter and noisier sections, the punky energy, the indie styled half-hooks (a whole hook could accidentally land them an unwanted older, more pop orientated fanbase). And TFT do it so well; no surprise there, as the group's been honing their sound for five years, even though they're still in their teens. Under James Paul Wisner
's prime-time, dense, and glossed to a shine production lies buried a rawer, edgier band. At some point, maybe on a future full-length, we'll get to hear that side of the band, but for now TFT have staked their claim in the teen market. One suspects they'll have much more to offer in a few years, until then let the millenials enjoy, the rest of us should just bide our time.
