iTunes Single Of The Week - We The Kings "Check Yes Juliet"

This week's free single, "Check Yes Juliet," comes from Bradenton, FL band, We The Kings.

This song could be classified as powerpop or emo pop. The song shares some similarities with the likes of Fall Out Boy and All American Rejects. It's a driving, well produced song that could easily find a home on commercial radio.

As much as I feel like I should hate this song, it's hard to deny a song full of melodic hooks. This is the same thing that is appealing about Fall Out Boy. The melodies will get stuck in your head for days.

"Check Yes Juliet" is a strong song from a band destined for mainstream success. If you're an indie snob, I suggest staying away. I don't want to hear your complaints.
