"Broken Lover, Yes I Made You, Believe That I, Would Be the One To Heal You...."

Don't get it twisted, this one strays a bit from the Hip Hop/R&B path, but if I were to compare 2AM Club to another well known group, it would be Gym Class Heroes. They have a contemporary, radio friendly R&B vibe with a Hip Hop twist sound to their music.

The band consists of six guys in their 20s, Marc Griffin, emcee Tyler Cordy, guitarist Matt Reagan, keyboard player Dave Dalton, drummer Ian O’Neill and bassist Matt Warshauer. Now that I think about it, their band's sound is slightly more Hip Hop compared to O.A.R., but less Hip Hop than Gym Class. While comparisons are fun, the sound they've created for their first single is undeniably unique and intriguing.

The funk they bring in the song below, Worry About You, added to the catchy sing along chorus offset by the keyboard background is what makes this song hard to ignore. The vibe of the track is so easygoing there's no doubt it will be destined for the radio...eventually. I just hope their unique mix of styles results in more tracks like this to come and they will be able to find their niche in Contemporary/Pop music while being able to appeal to a Hip Hop/R&B audience.

You be the judge, do you think they'll have some staying power based on this single? I say jury is still out, but this is a hell of a start...I just hope they don't get lumped in with all the other "boybands" just because they are 6 guys coming together to make music. Check out their lead single...
