After four full-lengths on Victory, The Audition’s new EP really does mark a new chapter for the band. With the help of their fans, they got the necessary funds together through Kickstarter and recorded their first new material since their Victory departure.

Saying bye bye to their label hasn’t had much impact on their sound though. These Chicago natives still like to dabble in danceable pop-rock and with Danny Stevens they have a vocalist who’s well-suited for the genre and I guess it helps set themselves apart in an overcrowded scene. Have a listen to “Who Do You Think You Are” and hear a band gearing up to start a party. They’re good at what they do… no question about that. But I’m trying to ban sugar out of my life and I’m afraid this is all a bit too sweet for me.
