Reviews Stay Sharp Four Songs

Stay Sharp

Four Songs

I remember lurking various bands Myspaces and coming across this Philadelphia band. I remember liking it, I also remember saying something about how Stay Sharp sounded like Lifetime. What's not to love? Well now this four-song EP is rocking in my boombox and now Stay Sharp remind of Holding On's Question What You Live For album. Yes, it's more fast melodic hardcore with shouted vocals. Okay "Sign It" reminds of The Loved One's more non-Springsteen punkier songs. Oh a big sing along at the end. YES! Anyhow, I want a band that sounds like Holding On, so I'm sticking to that. This is a good short introduction to a band that plays the type of hardcore that I like more than anyone else reasonably should.
