May 20, 2010 Man Overboard
Continuing on the pop punk binge that I’ve been going on recently, here is another great song from the band Man Overboard. Hailing from New Jersey, it is no surprise that they’re following in the footsteps of a lot of great bands from the late 90s and early 00s (Lifetime, Saves the Day etc…).
Man Overboard have got three solid releases out already: an awesome collection of old recordings (Before We Met), an acoustic EP (Noise From Upstairs), and a digital EP (Dahlia) that you can name your own price for (thanks Radiohead!). Check these out if you like the track below!
Here’s my favorite track from Dahlia: Montrose
The lyrics for this song are so simple, but convey a ton of feeling and paint a clear picture in so few words:
“Do you take pictures off the walls
When you know I’m coming to your room?
Do you hide all the stuffed animals the other boys bought for you?”
Man Overboard will also be releasing their debut full length on July 20th. It was recorded by Jesse Cannon, the same guy who has done albums with fellow Jersey compatriots Lifetime and Saves the Day as well as Say Anything, so you know it’s going to be good.
