There’s been quite a bit of buzz about the due of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino, known as A Great Big World. Following a plug in “So You Think You Can Dance?”, the band was noticed by Christina Aguilera. Christina thought she’d be the perfect fit to harmonize with their song “Say Something.” The single immediately became a radio hit getting thousands of plays across the country but it’s clear that Ian and Chad can hold their own without Christina ‘s “Is There Anybody Out There?” released on Tuesday. From songs like “Rockstar” that explode with fun lyrics and poppy beats to ballads like “Already Home” that capture a more emotional tone, this album is killer.
P.S. To those of you that go to The University of Houston, take note. Keep up with the blog for more info!
