Another solid single of the week for iTunes, this track helps to support Hey Monday’s recently released EP, “Beneath It All.” With a lot of previous success in the pop genre with songs like “Homecoming” and “How You Love Me Now,” the band is currently working on finishing an album to be released in 2011. In a recent interview with TAM, guitarist’s Alex Lipshaw and Mike Genitle said that the new EP would be “More organic, more diverse, every song is a little bit different. The music is more mature this time…”

Although the single itself doesn’t quite fit this description, there is more diversity as you delve into the album. One thing that I love about this band is their ability to stick together and be a real band. Although lead singer Cassadee Pope often steals the spotlight, they are doing everything in their power to never turn into an Avril Lavign type group. Genitle said that they never think of it like that, stemming from the fact that the guys, and gals in the band grew up together. “It’s like five really really good friends doing what we love.”
