Review in Indie Music Stop

First review of our We Are The Erasers EP is up on Indie Music Stop:

Artist: The States
Title: We Are the Erasers
Rating: 4/5
By L. Anne Carrington

September 22, 2009 will be the day to watch when The States release their five-song EP, We Are the Erasers. On the lines of short, straight and to the point, this collection of songs is a not-miss.

According to a blurb on the band’s official MySpace, their ‘inventive songwriting has earned accolades from the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Grand Prize Winners) and the International Songwriting Contest (Winners), and it has been featured on MTV’s ‘The Hills’, ‘The Real World,’ and ESPN’s ‘Baseball Tonight.’ Q104.3’s Jonathan Clarke recently included The States in his list of the Top 10 New York bands.

Their much-acclaimed talents and experience can be heard throughout the album, with the strongest cuts being “Our Time is Up” and “Erasers.” The song titles may be eccentric to some, but the music, productions, and vocals are outstanding.

The States are much deserving of radio airplay, and We Are the Erasers is just another good reason they should make the jump from indie to mainstream music. Check out this collection of work once it hits the market!
