Two Tongues: Two Tongues

Fire Drills Review:

Two Tongues is really an east meets west side project combination from New Jersey's Chris Conley and David Soloway out of Saves The Day and LA's Max Bemis and Coby Linder from Say Anything. The record is a true mix of the bands, with the higher end vocals of Save The Day rounded out with a more rock Say Anything sound. This is a project that if Two Tongues were a concise EP it would have rocked my brain out but even though it is only thirty five minutes its thirteen tracks don't seem quite finalized enough to all be winners. Any side project can suffer from the lack of time in the process and with some more prep, Two Tongues is a band worth checking out if there is a sophomore record based on the good ideas not fully developed here.

Key Track: "Wowee Zowee"

Band With Similar Fire: Fall Out Boy
