Video: POP ETC - "Speak Up"

POP ETC Speak UP video

After winning our hearts with their second studio album Big Echo (while they were still called the Morning Benders), POP ETC dropped the ball pretty hard earlier this year with the release of their self-titled LP. Out of all things, surprisingly enough, their contribution to the new Twilight Saga flick marks the Brooklyn outfit's return to putting out enjoyable music. Though they haven't completely ditched the overly-dreamy, ultra-polished sound the guys took on with their name change, the trio do a praiseworthy job at making their newfound approach work for them on "Speak Up". Not to mention, the song in its bare form is solid display of pop songwriting.
