The Future Everybody know how to do power pop. “Amy (Don’t Blame Me)” makes that evident right from the start of their new EP, It Takes Nothing. There’s a horn arrangement in the chorus that’s absolutely spot on. It’s unexpected, but not the least bit out of place. “Pictures Of You” and “Strings” keep things snappy. There are bop-baddas, witty lyrics, clever bridges and memorable melodies.
It Takes Nothing closes with “Immortal”. The Mellotron-like intro is a nice touch. It’s the little things like this that make a good power pop record. In this case, though, it’s Nate Rogers’ man-unhinged lyrics that puts the song over the top.
