THE DRAMA SUMMER
MAKE A MOVE
Upbeat and bouncy, The Drama Summer reaffirms the fact that Ohio isn't just for lovers anymore on the four-track sugar rush of MAKE A MOVE. Them lovebirds best make room for whiny emo bands like this crew, whose palatable suburban mall-punk sound suggests they were produced solely to play a trailer at Warped Tour. This run of the mill yet hard working band mesh Yellowcard, Hawthorne Heights, Simple Plan, and New Found Glory into a glorious punk-pop affair, as songs like "Don't Go" sets 14 year-old hearts ablaze while the more rocking and totally stock yet rebelliously spirited "We Make Rejection Look Beautiful" will be many a boy's first middle-school mosh experience.
