KEEP YER EYES PEELED: You Blew It!
Safe to say that emo never had an infectious smile until these Florida boys brought it back into pop culture relevance. Orlando collective You Blew It! has been garnering serious buzz after the release (and, kind of strangely, accompanying documentary) of their sophomore album Keep Doing What You’re Doing. They’ve perfected the Sunny Day Real Estate-meets-The Get Up Kids vibe: weird chords, bizarrely calming dissonance, and of course, uber-sincerity. Their latest video for “You & Me & Me” (I mean just look at the friggin’ song title, it’s like they’re emo machines here to save the genre) is utterly, perfectly 90s, down to the local access TV filter and baggy sweatshirts. Get your angst on.
