This song has been completely reorchestrated from its original rock inception with the help of producer Adam Schlesinger (who's also in Fountains of Wayne), this song doesn't sound like anything we would have ever done by ourselves, probably. It pays homage to one or two well known bands from the mid-1980's, but we're hoping the song will be so successful that eventually people will hear them and be reminded of us.
'Man Its So Loud In Here' a definite journey back in time to the 80's, with its disco feel and rock hook. Think Pet Shop Boys with electric guitars!!! 'Man...' will have you singing and dancing from your first listen, and is sure to become a standout live track.
