The Secrets We Can't Keep

Sparks The Rescue

Six-strong Sparks the Rescue trade in that pop-hardcore that seems to be all the rage with the kids these days. Luckily, the group's not afraid to bring their own particular musical influences to bear on the tried-and-true formula. That's why you'll hear the cookie monster Suffer-like vocals at the end of “The Runaway Romance,” courtesy of synth player/hype man Marty McMorrow or the Boston-inspired doubled guitar solo on “The Scene: Your Bedroom.” It's these touches that set the group apart from their peers and it's the reason you should be excited when they get more confidence in their style to further branch out in the future.
