We Are The In Crowd - On Your Own

December 13, 2011 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

We Are The In Crowd came to my attention when I first saw their music video for "Both Sides of The Story". Since then I have kept my eye on them, knowing that with enough promotion this band could be the next big thing. They are different and unique and oh so perfect in every way, and I'm sure it won't be long until they get some chart numbers behind them. Ever since I started this blog, I've been waiting for one of their music videos to be shown in the morning and today their most recent music video was shown, and I'm happy to finally get around to reviewing this band. I also know that DJD has been asking me when I'll be doing this band, so it looks like I'm not the only one who's been waiting.

We Are The In Crowd is a 5-piece rock group, that has 2 vocalists, making them really different to anything that's already out there. The band consists of Taylor Jardine, Jordan Eckes, Mike Ferri, Rob Chianelli and Cameron Hurley. This song is their ninth single overall, and haven't made the UK chart as of yet, but I'm pretty sure as of next year, a lot of people will be listening to them and I know that it won't be long until they get a chart number, I can see it!

This song and it's accompany music video doesn't match all that well in terms of storyline. The music video is all about fun, fun, fun, and I really do like it, but there is next to no narrative (which isn't always a bad thing people) especially since the song is about breaking up with someone but knowing that your strong enough to go it alone and you don't need the other person in your life anymore. Taylor Jardine's voice reminds me of Emily Wilson's from Checking Pulse, both bands will hopefully make it big next year.

What we do have in the music video is a stage performance which shows how the band's energetic vibe is sent across the fans, and you can tell all those people are enjoying it, making me jealous as I want to see them live. The fans reaction shows to whoever may watch this music video that they are great live, and that it's something you should discover.

I like the little clips of the band on the street and elsewhere. I like the inclusion of "All Time Low"'s vocalist Alex Gaskarth, I wouldn't have spotted him unless people on YouTube hadn't have commented, so thank you. These clips show the band as themselves, how cool they are and what they are really like. It goes with the narrative of the song slightly because they are doing what they want, they clearly don't need anyone else, and it only slightly fits in with the song, but that's a good thing too.

Overall, I love this band and can see them getting really far in the music industry. The song is amazing and after a few plays it is stuck in my head, screaming at me to go and buy it now. The music video is good to an extent, some of the camera shots make me dizzy as you can tell it was a handheld camera they used, which suggests a low-budget music video? But apart from certain bits this is a really good song and the music video is one I can watch again and again, I hope you all agree with my rating.
