The Scars On 45 debut full length is self-titled and it's on Chop Shop/Atlantic. It's Brit/Pop/Folk. Like singers that can sing? If that's a "yes," this might be your new favorite band as these Scars offer perfectly concocted corporate folk rock with stellar vocals from Danny Bemrose and Aimee Driver and there's nary a note out of place. Their big break was getting a song, "Heart On Fire," on "Grey's Anatomy," so that's probably the tune you may've heard. There's lots more just as good such as "Breakdown." Nothing close to a bad cut - this band is just as good as Mumford & Sons and my new favorite band this week.
