Alt, Who Goes There?

Brandon Wronski, frontman for the band Eye Alaska, characterizes his group’s sound as “genre-less.” It’s an appropriate description given that the foursome sounds very little like its stable-mates on Fearless Records or the majority of its peers from Orange County, California. However, nature and alt music abhor a vacuum, and Wronski makes a bow to convention by name-dropping influences such as Jimmy Eat World, Circa Survive, At the Drive-In – and Rascal Flatts! – and Disney soundtracks! No shit!
