Tic Tic Boom! Release EP ‘Reasons & Rhymes’

The first thing that came to mind when I heard about the band Tic Tic Boom! was a cheer my friends and I used to do back in elementary school. Yes, at one point in my life I wanted to be a cheerleader..I was a loud and energetic kid, and thought it was a good idea at the time. Anyway, the phase lasted like five minutes. So we would do this cheer that got us all hyped up and flaring our arms like crazy people. That’s what I thought about before listening to the band. I expected their sound to be reflective of how I felt at that age. And in Tic Tic Boom!’s EP Reasons & Rhymes, I can hear the youthful angst that I kept hidden during my private school days. The Hollywood-based group meshes synth pop with garage rock while lead singer Leilani Francisco whispers and bellows out catchy choruses. The sophomore EP comprises of five tracks, including  “The Pattern,” “The Open,” “180 Degrees,” “The Floodgate” and “Just Friends.” The indie pop foursome releases Reasons & Rhymes this Monday at The Viper Room.
