Hailing from La Crosse, Wisconsin, this Building is a powerhouse rock quartet that is sure to catch your attention. After playing in different bands together, Nick Breining (bass), Chris Kelley (vocals/guitar), Jesse Wolf (vocals/guitar), and Jaime Pelaez (drums) came together in November 2007 to create their own music. The band decided to record their first EP after getting an overwhelmingly positive fan response of their first single “Stay Awhile” on their MySpace page. Shortly after the completion of the drum tracks, Pelaez left the band to pursue other music. The remaining members decided to keep playing and enlisted a new drummer, Matt Neilson.
Their debut 6-track EP Are You Listening? is a compilation of hard rock and emotionally charged pop melodies that make you yearn for more.
With the opening track, “Last Song of Summer” you are instantly captivated by the heavy drum beats and rocking guitar riffs. This along with the heartfelt lyrics and harmonies of dual vocalists Chris Kelley and Jesse Wolf create a high-energy fervor.
The influence of pop punk on top of rock hooks and poignant lyrics gives this Building a unique, infectious, and catchy sound that will get you hooked upon first listen. This band is definitely destined for mainstream rock greatness.
