STREAM - The Castle EP



©2013 Emperors Club

“...[Emperors Club] is trading in nimble, exuberant indie rock with a smattering of ’90s influences and enough hooks that the music could have come from any decade.” - Kevin Bronson, Buzzbands.LA

“...Their tunes are immediately infectious and danceable, but there’s still enough going on underneath the surface to warrant repeat listens. Exuberant harmonies, spiky guitars, and fantastic lovelorn lyrics make these guys a group I will definitely be keeping an eye on.” - The Milk Carton

“Check out the latest single from Iowa City's Emperors Club - it's a good one!” - The Indie Machine

On the surface, "Our Time" seems to be channeling a more American set of 90s influences...However...you realize that this is in fact the grittier, indier twin of McAlmont & Butler's classic “Yes" - The Metaphorical Boat

“I cannot describe what makes me like this song that much; perhaps it is the mixture of the good moods emanating from it, punctuated by the raucous music itself.” - Deafening Silence

“...a nice shot of unexpected Iowa power pop that sounds more Merseybeat than Midwest.” - Glam-Racket

“...Each instrument, beat, strum, pluck, serves the overarching piece without feeling too rudimentary or hackneyed. Like hitting a Mariano Rivera cutter, writing a tight pop ballad is a feat, my friends...” - Corn-Fed Critic
