Free Music Friday: Strawberry Blonde – Better Still

Emo with a side of jazz?? Ok maybe not. But there are moments on Strawberry Blonde’s new record, Better Still, where that description feels right. Having a dedicated trumpeter in the band takes Strawberry Blonde out of “just another emo band” crowd. At times Better Still has a jazzy vibe. At others, you might be reminded of ska. The album’s opener, Near and Far (as heard on the Meltdown this past week), is a fun, upbeat track that will get you out of chair and on the dance floor! Songs like Younger Days and Another Dream get super mathy. Out of Place is a straight up rock and roll rager.
