Junior Prom – “Junior Prom” [EP]

Junior Prom - Junior Prom

 

Tag: Spotlight

Release date: 4 February 2014

Let’s make summertime come a bit sooner with with Junior Prom‘s debut self-titled EP. Junior Prom is a Brooklyn duo of Mark Solomich and Erik Ratensperger. The five tracks here are all cute, jangly indie power ballads replete with horns, keyboards, and drum machines. The dueo uses a wall-of-sound production and jittery percussion to create a driving groove that’ll stick with you well into your shift. The pop punk influence in strong with this one: it’s chock-full of adrenaline-pumping, uplifting melodies. They give off a kinda douchey appearance on their promo materials, but oh well, this is still hand-raising, beachtime good times that’s fit for any clubbing fun times.

Definitely play on morning shows and party shows. Out on Elektra Records.
