Many students are sick of turning on the radio and hearing the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feelin’,” Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA” and Taylor Swift’s “You Belong With Me.” It seems as though the same songs are played over and over and can get extremely annoying. Wouldn’t it be nice to hear something new?
There are many radio-worthy bands out there whose songs have not been beaten into students’ heads, at least not yet. Red Car Wire is one of these bands. Many might believe that a band from Dallas, Texas would consist of a bunch of cowboys singing about the open range, but this is not the case with Red Car Wire.
Red Car Wire is a high-energy, three piece, pop-punk band that is not yet signed to a record label. Although their lyrics do not repeatedly ask about being “down, down, down, down, down,” they are very catchy and relatable. For example, their song “Kids in Love” is about a young couple who are just out having fun and forgetting about everything else.
Jane Kaufmann (`10) describes the song as “a love story with a more teenage-related and realistic flare. It’s not sappy and it’s very catchy. I definitely think people would like it because it’s so catchy.” Red Car Wire’s mixture of bouncy guitar lines, catchy lyrics and awesome vocals make them stand out from the rest of the music scene. This may be exactly what students need.
If Miley Cyrus just isn’t cutting it anymore, check out Red Car Wire. Their songs are upbeat and fun to sing along to, and not something played a million times a day. The songs played on the radio are getting awfully repetitive. Give Red Car Wire a chance and who knows, listeners may even end up nodding their heads like yeah.
