Three Summers Strong - If You Change The Way You Look At Things, The Things You Look At Change

There was a time, a few short years ago, where music became elitist and musicians doubly so. The tunes were replaced with brand names - the quality of writing and performing took a nose-dive and it became about the haircuts. And for a while I feared that was the future of 'the scene'.

And then one day it stopped. Like so many trends before it - sure, some of these traits remain but not here and certainly not with these guys - Three Summers Strong.

To say these guys were among the friendliest bands we've ever met is something of an understatement - but all that aside, they are a talented bunch and deserve as many props for their music as they do their personalities.

'If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change' is a damn fine effort. It's a spot on mix of catchy riffs and instantly likeable punk tunes that can change your day from bad to amazing in one short burst - and that's a rarity in itself.

We don't do marks out of 5 here because every now and then a 6 would make us look like we'd forgotten how to count.
