Easy Company, a modern rock outfit based out of New Jersey, pack a solid rock punch on their EP Hello World. While far from the much used first line of code used by computer programmers to test out or teach a new program (i.e. the hello world program), the title aptly fits the band state of affairs and intent on this EP nicely. As their website states, Easy Company “takes cues from favorite artists such as the Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys and various modern and classic rock acts” and it shows. As a band, it seems Easy Company knows who they are, what they like, and how they want to sound and they aren’t afraid to show it. Their hello world, while not too far removed from the sounds of other band is refreshingly straight forward and honest.
The EP starts out rocking and keeps moving for the remainder. There are no lulls or dull moments, and there is a great deal of potential for future releases. They are stated as saying “hopes to help people remember that rock and roll, rock and roll shows and big drums and guitars still throw one hell of a party.” If their sound is indicative of the vibe at their shows, I’m it’s nothing but a good time and a solid sound with these guys.
So if you’re looking for good old, ass kicking rock and roll head on over to their Soundcloud and check out Easy Company. Also, be sure to check them out live if they stop by your town. From the looks of things they might be head south and all around the East Coast, so stop out and give them a chance.
