The Fleeting Ends - Our Eyes Are Peeled

Meet the Philadelphia three-piece The Fleeting Ends. Matt Vantine, Matt Amadio and Russell Langley have been playing together for a handful of years now, concocting a powerful pop-rock blend that is undeniably infectious. On their latest full length album, Our Eyes Are Peeled, the Philly trio graduate to a new level, offering their most fully realized collection of songs to date and a perfect feel-good soundtrack to our summer.

From the opening notes of "Little People," the tempo-pushing album starter, The Fleeting Ends set the tone for what's to come on Our Eyes Are Peeled. Songs filled with youthful energy and spirit, the band harnesses newfound confidence. It's a cohesive collection that offers up a solid set of well-crafted, ear-worms like "I'm Like That," "Operator," and falsetto-laden "Critics."

Writing catchy pop songs like the ones you'll hear on Our Eyes Are Peeled is really no easy task. However, The Fleeting Ends will fool you because they make it sound so effortless. Across the board, from the orchestrations to the songwriting to the performance and production, Our Eyes Are Peeled is the perfect step forward for an exciting young band like The Fleeting Ends.
