Army Navy: Army Navy

The Fever Zone Records [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Who is in the mood for a good power pop album reminiscent of some 90's masters like The Posies, Teenage Fanclub, Cast, or even The Smiths? If so, Army Navy provide just the touch on their debut self-titled album that is chalked full of catchy and crunchy numbers, which easily retains your ears attention. This is a band that has all the cards currently falling for them like successfully releasing the album on their own label, sharing the stage with The Arctic Monkeys, and recording an exclusive song that is on the indie soundtrack for the new Michael Cera movie Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

Key Track: "Saints"

Band With Similar Fire: Teenage Fanclub
