Half Past Nine from Canadian band Among Legends is a caffeinated shot of punk/pop that portrays moving on and starting over (incidentally the name of the album) from a relationship gone awry.
The singer wants proof the girl is home and not just pictures of her on his phone. She’s a crafty one and the guy is heartbroken; isn’t it always the other way around? I know, I know, that was in jest. Half Past Nine has all the makings of a great jilted-lover tale and the jealousy and memories that ensue.
Among Legends moves the listener through Half Past Nine with gritty but concise guitar tones and progressions. It is an expertly created punk/pop journey with plenty of harmonies to keep the vocal performance lofty and appealing to the listener. Half Past Nine is playlist and speeding ticket worthy.
