On first glance I thought these guys were gonna bust out with some Jaspects-like jazzy funky soul type shit...pleasantly surprised they sounded more like Paramore...
A black male version of Paramore.?..Have my prayers been answered?
The lead singer, Enye is pretty dope. I'm talking ...seriously...he can actually sing!...(plus he's tall and dark with locs and skinny jeans...sooo...he can pretty much get it...BUT...somethin' tells me he's not into black girls... #fail)
They're juuuuust commercial enough to have mass appeal...but its obvious that their not trying to be a token "black rock group"...u know...its obvious that they're not trying to appeal to any audience...they didn't 'blacken" their music to appeal to hip-hop heads or "whiten" it to appeal to heavy metal emo listeners.
They're just making music...and if you you're a true music lover you should be able to appreciate The 54, if not for their music, for that fact alone.
Plus they're the only TRUE rock band that can say "nigga" without me startin a riot!
Check em out...The 54
Im planning on going to see them on February 11th at The Drunken Unicorn 9pm...u should come2...
