Rooney - Euerka

In the year of 99 a four piece rock band from Los Angeles had been signed and the band was composed of Robert Schwartzman, Louie Stephens, Taylor Locke, and Ned Brower. The band taking their name after the principal Ed Rooney, from the movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off - the name stuck and was used for a good amount of time before being switched up to just Rooney.

The band was quite satisfied with themselves as far as the name goes and the music they were compelling behind it all, releasing 2 albums, their self-titled debut back in 03 then after a few years had come and gone, followed that up with "Calling the World" (2007) and later released an EP known as the "Wild One" (2009). Though the band had already accomplished so much as it were, having released these release thus far and toured all over the nation. Rooney is stated as the band that "manages to capture elements from the past four decades and make them sound modern today." Hence the resemblance to The Beatles, The Cars, Jellyfish and Blur expresses that reminiscent source of British Invasion rock being crossed over with the 80s pop era.

With that said, the band wasted no time whatsoever to go right back into writing mode to write brand new material for their EP's departure with the release of their third album, "Eureka". This arrangement of rock anthems comprises of just that being a round-up of rock anthems that make you throw your fist in the air while bobbing your head to the beat of the music. For instance opening tune "Holdin' On” starts off with a count off soon breaking away with a mellow but fast paced beat of hard hitting drum beats with guitar soloing riffs mix-matched here and there. While current single “Can’t Get Enough”, declares what it portrays in its title, you simply cannot get enough of what Rooney has to offer its listeners.

“Into The Blue”, brings back that easy listening feeling that was once portrayed on their previous self-titled release showcasing a softer side to Rooney that we have bear witnessed to beforehand but this time around it’s so meaningful its unheard of. “All Or Nothing”, brings back that same passion and essence that “Holdin’ On” and “Can’t Get Enough”, had done, leaving the remaining portion of “Euerka” to rotate back and forth indicating that Rooney’s case of modern rock is here to stay.
