1,2,3 is the brainchild of Nic Snyder and Josh Sickels, two friends from Pittsburgh, PA, who recently released there debut full-length album entitled New Haven in June. Aside from the logistical nightmare that is attempting to Google search “1,2,3,” my first experience with this group was extremely positive. After listening to samples that are posted on their myspace page, I became more enamored with their creativity and their ability to create so many different sounds, often within the framework of a single song. One benefit of this creativity is that the listener is never truly able to stereotype this band and any attempts to pigeonhole 1,2,3 into a specific category or compare them to others is quickly defeated when the next track plays.
Set in the quintessential blue-collar city of Pittsburgh, PA, “Work” is somewhat of a laborer’s anthem. Check out the video below and head over to their myspace page to hear more samples. As aforementioned, New Haven, their latest album hit the markets in June and its one of my favorite of the year thus far.
