Song: “Burn It Down”
Album: Megalithic Symphony
The end of another work/school week is in sight. Just make it through today and the glory of the weekend is yours. To give you that extra boost of energy to make it through what is sometimes the longest day of the week, we give you this punk rock meets Little Richard burst of energy from incredible up and comers AWOLNATION. Try not to break the table from all of the thrashing around that is imminent upon listening.
This band has slowly built a loyal following one show and one track at a time. They’ve made appearances at most major festivals in the U.S. and are known for their wildly enthusiastic live shows that are brimming with kinetic energy that connects with crowds in just the right way to get everybody moving and having a great time. While this band may be fairly new, lead singer AWOL (aka Aaron Bruno) has been in the music biz for quite a while with various projects, including the criminally overlooked and under appreciated band Under the Influence of Giants. AWOLNATION’s album Megalithic Symphony is an impressive debut that manages to blend garage rock, R&B, pop and electronic elements into a completely new and modern sound. This is what pop music should sound like. To seal the deal of just how fun and fantastic this band and song is, check out the hilarious video for “Burn It Down” below and have a great weekend.
