Everyone Everywhere

A Lot of Weird People Standing Around

Everyone Everywhere is a relatively new group from Philadelphia that loves to wear their influences plainly on their sleeve. Sounding somewhere between Nothing Feels Good-era Promise Ring and the bouncy guitars of Braid, they bring us four tracks of this 90’s style that I don’t hear very often anymore. This seven-inch turns out to be an interesting exploration of a few different approaches, while still remaining within the boundaries you would expect from this style. “Everyhow Everythere” is a solid poppy track that reminds me a lot of Hey Mercedes’ first record, while “Thermal Dynamics” is a little more bittersweet, with the vocals hinting heavily at Matt Pryor of The Get Up Kids. Even the acoustic intro to “Cool Pool Keg Toss Pete” feels natural instead of corny, and the lyrics are fun instead of inane. To be honest I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this record, as many bands fall all-too-short of their listed influences, but Everyone Everywhere has proven to be an extremely promising outfit. Standing above a lot of bands that attempt to emulate those near-perfect years of the Midwest, Everyone Everywhere is destined to turn more than a few heads.
