I’m going to admit it, I miss Myspace. A whacky time for youthful exploration of the important stuff; cool bands, HTML code, and those weird bulletins that would kill you if you didn’t re-post them in 30 minutes. Listening to Tougher Than You Thought, feels a lot like this. They sprinkle in a little twenty-something heartache with a sound all their own. Their debut EP Check, Please has had me in my feels since the first time I heard it.
Their song “Open Book “ is the culmination of dope guitar riffs, catchy drumbeats, and lyrics that I would have probably used for a picture caption or two. Not to mention, the band members themselves have an extremely awesome back-story, according to their facebook “2 members of the band have parents who won the immigration lottery (1 in 900,000 odds) in their home countries”. This band is dynamic and worth a listen, check them out below. &Hearts;
