Song of the Day: Friday, January 25

Band: Brand New

Song: Secondary

Album: Your Favorite Weapon

Before reaching greater acclaim with a more refined and “mature” sound, Long Island’s Brand New released a great little emo/pop-punk debut album entitled Your Favorite Weapon. Like the rest of the album, “Secondary” follows the genre’s template to great hooky success, with the verses seamlessly flowing into an explosive chorus guaranteed to start a pogo-pit. However, the best part is the song’s ending: blazing pop-punk guitars, reckless energy and several layers of passionate vocals bring the song to it’s soaring, anthemic climax. Many band’s might have attempted this sound, but few did it better.
