Study up on Social Studies

By David Goe

Social Studies' new album "Developer," is aptly named. One spin of the San Francisco band's latest single "Terracur" is enough to know why. The song starts off with Natalia Rogovin's voice and builds from there. A simple drum beat and guitar riff slowly follow and as the song develops you start to understand why this up and coming band is so popular.

On this album the band stuck with the basics and used simple methods to create layered songs. Using both instruments and emmotion, Social Studies make modern pop music with texture and mood. 

"Before, we were rebellious,"  Rogovin says. "Developer is a more adult record. We tried to explore sounds and draw out parts to write more moving and focused songs."

Catch Social Studies tomorrow night at the Cavalcade in Fruita. They will be performing with Radiation City and Brainstorm. It's a show not to miss.
