Wasted – You vs Yesterday Music Review

You vs Yesterday is an up-and-coming pop/rock band from Ohio comprised of Kramer Welker (vocals, guitar), Eric Hickman (vocals, keyboard), Jonathan Hart (guitar), Brandon Tyzzer (bass), and Jordan Unverferth (drums). The band has one EP called “Remember This” which was released February 26, 2016.

Released July of 2014, “Wasted” is the band’s first single, which makes an appearance on their EP. From the moment the song begins, you can feel that it’s going to be a great song. It starts with calm and rhythmic guitar strums and builds up to a energetic beat. The drums wait their turn to take over and when the first chorus hits they definitely do not play it low key. The strong pounding of the drums add a whole other element to the song.

The build up to the bridge is also executed brilliantly. It’s hard to believe that this is the band’s first song and have only released one EP. It usually takes most bands years to develop the sound that You vs Yesterday has already mastered.

The combination of Welker and Hickman’s vocals complement each other beautifully. Their overlapping voices add another interesting layer to the song. They do not drown one another out or fight to be heard. They have distinct roles and they stick to them. And that’s why it sounds so great and pleasing to hear.

“Wasted” has catchy and fun lyrics that are easy to rock out to. It has the perfect sound of classic pop punk with the relatable theme surrounding the desire for someone. However, the band puts their own twist to show off their originality.

Before you know it, the song is over far too soon, but thank god for the replay button.

You vs Yesterday is like no other band out there. They are destined to go far and it’s only a matter of time before they take off. And I can’t wait to see what they have in store for us next.

~Stay Punk Rock~

She’s coming over tomorrow afternoon / crawling back for more/ and I want her too,/but for selfish reasons my conscience never left her room,/ tell me whats a boy to do?
