Pop Zinger: “Here’s To The Zeros” by Marianas Trench (@mtrench)

MARIANAS TRENCH, “Here’s To The Zeros”

I’ve enjoyed Marianas Trench’s alt.rock since I first saw them in concert in 2007, a pretty raw and loud performance supporting their debut album Fix Me, and hence I have all of their albums.  For those who don’t know, the quartet are all classically trained musicians and vocalists, and fine songwriters, as Josh Ramsay can attest with his numerous award nominations (including Grammy) for co-writing Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe”.  So as 2014 comes to a close, it’s the eve of a new MT album, which appears to be titled Astoria, and the band premiered new single “Here’s To The Zeros” in the above lyric video on Christmas Day.  Listen really closely to the lyrics folks, “Zeros” is a witty pop zinger that MT writes so well you will find yourself singing it in no time.  I was getting a little worried after “POP 101” did not resonate with me at all, but if Astoria is full of music like “Here’s To The Zeros”, then their fourth album has been well worth the three year wait since Ever After (though I would personally love another Masterpiece Theatre!).   It’s also great to know that Interscope will also release Astoria in the U.S. following the success of Ever After.  And I do believe I hear the North American tour dates being arranged…. You can also check out the live acoustic performance of “Zeros” below – MT had already been performing the song in concert for a few months.
