Location: Portland, OR
Genre: Power Pop / Indie Rock
Key Tracks: I Wanna Know
The CRY is an awesomely powerful pop indie band that has resurrected The Beach
Boys' sound and given it a more modern twist. Their latest album project is a lot of fun
and something that's safe for just about any age.
"I Wanna Know" is a really cool song by The CRY that kept my head bopping and
provided the type of listening pleasure that is sorely missing in popular music today. The
music and vocals are a great match for one another and the songwriting is pretty good.
The track is pretty laid back on the verses, but the music picks up speed on the choruses
and really adds some extra flare to the song. This reminds me of high school and proves
that no matter how old you get, young love never changes. Good song!
There are several other good songs on The CRY's latest project, including: Modern
Cinderella, Such a Bore, and I Think I'm In Love. Each of these tracks has its own
message and personality, but they also prove how consistent the band is throughout this
Overall, The CRY is a cool group of musicians who are bringing to the masses one of the
best power pop albums available today. I believe that this band could go all the way to
the top if given the right support. I'd recommend checking out The CRY and buying their
album if you're into power pop bands.
MUSICAL GOAL: "To be the best power-pop band in the world! Seriously! We mean it!" -
