This is a nice surprise: gentle, bouncy, male/female vocal alternative pop that thankfully doesn't fall into the copycat category of "nu-metal." Capital City are a lot more relaxed and mid-tempo with additional keyboard backings and nice samba percussions on "The Sound" A-side. Although the flip of "National Landmark" doesn't quite have the same catchiness -- bringing up sounds of Ben Folds Five, except not as mainstream sounding -- this is a nice change of pace amongst the world of recycled Third Eye Blind and Verve Pipe bands.
