The What Four
While listening (as usual) to WOXY.com last week, I heard an interesting song from a band called What Four.
The song, entitled "Prelude No. 1 in D Minor", was all over the place, with piano, strings and soaring guitars all coming together into very pretty sections which would, on a dime, turn into complete freak-outs, and just as quickly switch back into prettiness.
I finally had a chance to look into the band today, and it turns out that all the glorious noise of that song was made by a group of high school seniors from outside of Chicago. Unbelievable. When I was in high school, all my friends' bands played were covers of Guns n' Roses, Metallica and Rush. Needless to say, these kids are a little more talented than my friends. (Sorry, Adam and Charlie.)
They have three other songs at their MySpace page, all of which show a lot of promise too, but I keep coming back to "Prelude".
"Prelude No. 1 in D Minor"
I can't wait to hear what they sound like when they're 19.
