Album Review: The Company We Keep, self-titled 7"

The Company We Keep is a new band featuring an all star lineup including Justin Pierre (Motion City Soundtrack), Branden Morgan (Misery Signals) and Brian Southall (The Receiving End of Sirens). Newcomer Amy Brennan takes the helm as lead vocalist. The group is the first act to release a 7" for the Making Moves project, which is released via Drexel University's Mad Dragon Records & Motion City Soundtrack's label The Boombox Generation.

With a sound reminiscent to bands like Garbage & The Cardigans, The Company We Keep's 3-song 7" shows an rock outfit destined to take the streets in no time. Whether it's the heavenly melodies ("Right/Wrong") or the uber catchy choruses ("The Company She Keeps"), you'll find yourself hitting repeat until the button stops working. The true gem of this 7" is the band's intriguing cover of At The Drive In's "Pattern Against User". Drenched with electronics, this cover is sure to puzzle people as much as it will excite people. Let's hope this band keeps us company for a very long time.
