Album ReviewTaken Flight - Messed Up But Alright EP
Posted by cut!print on 09/07/12
The Billboard
Taken Flight is a high energy Power-Pop/Punk/Rock band based out of Green Bay, Wisconsin. From the tongue in cheek humor, to the powerful anthemic messages about topics ranging from booze & girls to mistrust of politicians, the bands lyrical content varies based upon what inspires them at that particular time. "The philosophy here is we're going to write about topics that people can relate to. Whether thats about relationships, having too much to drink & making a fool of yourself or voicing concerns about the government or current affairs, it depends on what inspires us at that time", says frontman/guitarist Jay Wisneski. The band also prides itself on an interactive live performance, punk rock attitude & the catchiest of power-pop hooks that always leave you begging for more! From the sing along chouruses to the pounding, heart stopping beats, this band has everything you want in a great rock band! Over the past 2 years the band has worked hard at getting the music heard via internet, radio & any other networking sources available. The band has consistenly played shows with other up and coming local Wisconsin acts, as well as opened up for national acts such as Relient K, Ludo & We are Heroes. In Feb 2009, the band released "Two Cities", a 4 song EP. The songs "Short Skirts & Pantyhose", "1987" & "986 Miles", all off of the "Two Cities" EP, have all received radio airplay on major & college radio stations in Wisconsin. Recently, "1987", another song off of the "Two Cities"EP, was submitted to the Quickstar productions pop-punk compilation "Vs the World", which was released nationally in Oct 2009. The song also appeared on Whatthepunk's 2009 punk rock compilation which was handed out to fans at the Warped Tour! Most recently, in November 2009, the band released a follow up Self-titled EP, which features 3 new songs , the politically controversial Anti-Obama anthem "Burn It", A catchy number about the trials & tribulations of partying called "Wasted", the nostalgic "Beliefs of a lost past" as well as a revamped version of "1987", called "1987 Parkview Road". With some significant accomplishments already under the band's belt, Taken Flight's future is looking up as one of the hottest up and coming musical artists in the country!
