I’m a huge fan of producer Will Yip (The Wonder Years, Light Years, Balance and Composure), so I became really excited when I heard that he would be working with Major League on their new album There’s Nothing Wrong With Me. “Pillow Talk,” the album’s first single, showcases the band in an entirely different light compared to their 2012 debut LP “Hard Feelings.” With guitarist Brian Joyce now taking charge of vocals, the band’s sound is refreshing and better than ever. If this song is any indication, they’ve transformed from a fun, promising, but still pretty standard pop punk group into a more mature, introspective band whose thoughtful, nuanced, and passionate style will continue to evolve in ways that could breathe new life into a genre that needs it.
If you love some of the other bands who have worked with Will Yip, most notably Light Years, who recently toured with Major League, then There’s Nothing Wrong With Me should definitely be on your radar. It comes out November 4 on No Sleep Records. You can pre-order it here and stream “Pillow Talk” via Absolute Punk.
