The Vamps and AJR Rock The Gramercy Theater in Sold Out Show

We were lucky to see The Vamps first NY show last night!  It was amazing to see how much support The Vamps have in the US, especially since they only released their first single in the States a couple of days ago!   Hard to believe that this was actually their first headlining show — ever!  The Vamps are fresh from a string of nights opening for Taylor Swift at the O2 Arena in London, where I’m sure they learned a thing or two (like, make sure you know how long the stage is)

They gave a high energy performance and their fun stage presence had them interacting with fans and fellow band mates, even taking a moment to take selfies with a fan’s phone that had been thrown onstage.  (Fangirl note:  This is not a good idea, please don’t throw objects of any kind at band members.  They thank you in advance.)

The Vamps opened with their single, “Wild Heart,” and played crowd favorites like “Can We Dance” and their new single “Last Night.”  They also debuted some new material, and rocked covers of “Mr. Brightside” and “Cecilia”! Check out our video for “Girls On TV” below.

Opening act AJR totally won over the sold out crowd, and had the whole venue moving to their single “I’m Ready” by the end of their set.  It’s incredible to see how the support for AJR keeps growing and growing!  The crowd was chanting “AJR! AJR!” as the boys took the stage, and you could feel the excitement and energy in the air.  We’re sure AJR made quite a few new fans last night!  Their performance was amazing as usual, and we can’t say enough good things about these talented brothers.

AJR’s Debut EP “6foot1” is officially out!

Last week, New York based pop trio AJR released their debut EP “6foot1” on iTunes and Amazon MP3. Now that we have had some time with the new songs, we are blown away with how talented these guys are!

Written, recorded, mixed and mastered all by themselves in their parents’ living room, AJR continues to impress us.  As if that wasn’t enough, the boys also designed the cover art.    And in case you were wondering where the title “6foot1” came from, it’s because Adam, Jack and Ryan are all 6 foot 1.  Here is our track-by-track review of the EP!

The opening track, “I’m Ready” is the brothers’ first single and has been climbing the Pop Chart on iTunes (as high as 98!).  Sampling the iconic Spongebob “I’m Ready” clip, AJR layered dubstep bass drops and the most catchy chorus we’ve heard all year.

The second track ,”Woody Allen”, has such a fun sound to it!  We aren’t quite sure what they mean when they say they feel like Woody Allen but it makes for a great song.  Also, the most inventive censoring of a word we’ve ever heard (we’re looking at you Ryan!).   This song has so many layers and we can’t stop listening to it!   We hear something new every time.

“Growing Old On Bleecker Street” isn’t exactly new to us, but every time we listen to this song, we wish we could live on Bleecker Street.   We love the ukelele and the melody of this song.  One of our favorite lyrics: “I woke up last night from a dream that we’d grow old on Bleecker Street. Sit by the fire and I’d play my guitar but dreams are only dreams.”

We are obsessed with the horns in “AfterHours.”    We can’t wait to hear this song live!   It’s super catchy and high energy chorus will have any venue rocking.   And are those water glasses we hear in the background?   Nice.

The EP closes with “Buy You a Rose,” which showcases Adam, Jack and Ryan’s unique voices and powerful harmonies.   Check out their beatboxing in the background (we already knew they had serious skills).   The gang vocals on this song are incredible.  Just listen to this song and you’ll see why it’s our favorite.

As we’ve mentioned, we are seriously looking forward to what’s in store from AJR next year, including the release of their full length debut album.  (PS guys, we are going to need studio versions of “The Green and The Town” and “Married on a Hill” hint hint)

The EP is available now on iTunes and Amazon MP3 for just $2.99!   That’s less than your morning latte.  Get it now!
