YMN Review: Every You
Every You is an alternative pop/rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Roughly 300 miles from Ocala, where A Day To Remember hails from, Every You shares many similar qualities. Describing themselves as an "Alternative/Pop/Rock band out of South Florida with a little something more to it." That could not be more true. They play a heavier sound then many bands in the same genre, which is a refreshing and unexpected change.
Every You released their debut album "A Change Of Scene" back in 2009. This is a very strong album, consisting of six songs, highlighted by "Piece Of My Mind" and the title track. It is hard to point out any glaring errors or weak points on the record, which is impressive and something that you don't find a lot of these days, with musicians trying to pump out as much content as possible. You can really tell that Every You cares about their music and that they want to put out the highest quality work for their fans. These guys deserve your respect and your ears.
In the Fall of 2012, Every You released a new single "Yours To Keep" along with two other songs. "Yours To Keep" is a bit of a change from "A Change Of Scene". They keep the core of their sound but they have a more polished sound to them. "A Change Of Scene" was just so full of energy throughout, whereas "Yours To Keep" seems to dial it back a bit. Not that it's a bad thing, they now have a more mature sound to them as they seem to drift more towards the alternative rock genre and away from the pop side of things.
It didn't take long for Every You to win me over as a fan. I wasn't exactly sure what to expect the first time I listened to them but was beyond pleasantly surprised. I look forward to hearing what these guys do in the future and wish them nothing but the best going forward!
