Rearview Minor release new EP ‘Three’

The rock band from Maryland known as Rearview Minor have released their latest EP record, “Three.” The album contains three original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 12 minutes. Like the band’s previous material, “Three” has been proudly published as an independent release outside the reach and influence of the corporate music industry. Harmonic and extremely well-written, “Three” by Rearview Mirror pulses with a power-pop groove and cuts with an alt-rock edge that fans of verve-charged rock music everywhere are sure to appreciate.

On Rearview Minor’s official Facebook page, they cite as main artistic influences only two bands, original indie legends, Ween, and alt-rock underdogs from the American East Coast, Extreme. With these Rearview Minor shares a number of similarities. The variety of tones, moods and textures on “Three” is remarkable – particularly considering that the EP achieves this range in only three tracks – a strength Ween has always had in spades. Rearview Minor’s ample capacity for aggression and tenderness in equal measures recalls some of the best moments of both bands, also.

At the heart of Rearview Minor is singer-songwriter Drew Chap. Asked to describe his project, he writes that it is “a project I’ve cultivated over the past year or so with help from a bunch of friends. The name ‘Rearview Minor’ was formed in much the same manner as some of the songs: through a combination of bonus time and the energy that comes from the euphoria of friends recently reunited, as much more appearance of substance and meaning is apparent than is actually there.”

Appearances aside, however, the EP is at least partially a result of these connections, and Chap is quick to acknowledge it.

“It’s not all smoke and mirrors,” he writes. “’Rearview Minor’ has prophetically come to symbolize the childhood nostalgia embodied by these songs, from old southern jig to pirate anthem to traditional Irish pub sing-along – looking back to the pre-adulthood days when everything seemed possible, and responsibility was as transparent as the bottom of the glass at the end of the night.”

“Three” by Rearview Minor is available online worldwide. Fans of alt-rock and the original indie-rock sound should absolutely get in early.
