How Do We Jump This High?

Funny/Not Funny

Answer Key Records, the new record label formed by Bridge & Tunnel's, Jeff Cunningham, chose How Do We Jump This High's, Funny/Not Funny, for the label's first release--a quartet comprised of members of the short lived Get Bent and Frame. Together, they blend their sound into one melodic-punk explosion.

Funny/Not Funny picks up where the band's first EP, Deep Stationary, left off, but it's a bit more capering. Mike Borth kicks things off with a deep bass tone on “En Route.” The chorus is backed with great harmonies from the lead guitar that carry over into the following track, “Potential,” which also contains a solo. The second half of the EP, opens with “The Greats.” Despite being a good track, it's a bit forgettable. Nothing stands out much from it. However, they end the EP with its best song, “Migraines.” It features the urgency I would have liked to have heard from the previous tracks and maintains its catchy melodies.

Hopefully, history won't repeat itself, and we'll get to see a full length from How Do We Jump This High before they decide to disband. They've shown promise thus far. Funny/Not Funny is a solid release, but there's still room for improvement.
