The Schwa – Bound to Happen

According to the liner notes for the debut release from The Schwa, these three songs were recorded at the MTSU Studio D – presumably as part of the Recording Industry degree that Murfreesboro is known for. It also means we can assume that the band was born roughly 18-20 years ago (okay, maybe that’s a leap). Assuming that’s true, it’s remarkable to hear the result of songwriting written by a group potentially influenced heavily by the late 90’s, mid 2000’s barrage of BritRock bands.

They do a great job of capturing that frantic energy without losing sight of catchy hooks, layered vocals and some interesting guitar play. It’s only three songs to go off of but I’d vote to get them back into Studio D as soon as possible.
