Would You PLEASE Aim Higher? Would You Please Aim Higher?

I found another amazing Richmond, VA band. Maybe I should think about moving to Richmond at some point.

For starters, Richmond’s Friendly Fire is named after a Jawbreaker song of the same name. They set the expectations bar pretty high with that band name choice, but they fully deliver. The lyrics, the voice, the melody, EVERYTHING!
While they obviously draw from the alternative/ pop-punk/ indie vein as did Jawbreaker, they often closely resemble Rites of Spring in raw vocal style and somewhat unusual fast, emo guitar structures. Jawbreaker and Rites of Spring influences = winning combination. I love being part of this generation that was born in the early Dischord years and now has amazing bands to choose from for inspiration.
