Power popsters The Fleeting Ends have just released their new Can’t Say No EP, and it’s available for free via NoiseTrade. The EP includes the new singles “Cant Say No,” and “7 a.m. Again,” along with exclusive demo recordings.

The Fleeting Ends’ musical lexicon includes draws on bands like Blur, The Smiths, XTC and Elvis Costello. Their love of power pop combined with their crafty songwriting makes for a powerful punch. The trio includes Matt Vantine (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Matt Amadio (drums), and bassist Rusty Langley. The band, from Upper Darby, formed in 2008, released a well received EP, and a full length, Our Eyes Are Peeled, in 2012. The Key’s John Vettese, writing about the album, said:

Critics like to call musicians “derivative” when their own work is easily aligned with the artists who influenced it. I’m as guilty of any other writer of doing this – and I do hope that nothing I wrote in the past stoked the fire of this album’s “Critics” – but let’s be real here. It’s virtually impossible to sound completely detached from the past when you’re up against a half-century of pop / rock songwriting. These guys embrace it, but do so without outright copycatting, and there’s the rub. With Our Eyes are Peeled, The Fleeting Ends recast that back-catalogue, projecting all the records they were reared on through their still-developing voice – and doing so, announce themselves in a big way.

They play MilkBoy on Wednesday, November 26th. Copies of their single will be available at the show.
