One True Thing
Finally... (Play the Assassin)
By: Mike SOS
One True Thing's latest 12-track release further solidifies the current Long Island band gold rush that many record companies are perpetuating, as the quartet plays an undeniably catchy brand of rock not too far off the mark of neighboring bands Taking Back Sunday and Brand New. Only difference is that OTT employs a female lead singer whose delivery falls somewhere between Mazzy Star and Cranberries, a device that gives Finally... an edge which most of its peers bands lack. Songs like "In a Whisper" sounds like the perfect background music for a love scene in a tender teenage romantic comedy, while the teeth gnashing bounce of "Do You Remember" and the sinewy groove of "Monster" will give throngs of maladjusted youth something to pogo to. One True Thing's melancholy dream pop meets vibrant mod rock style is refreshingly different, yet fits right along your dime a dozen emo and screamo bands crying in their beer.
