Despite their arbitrary moniker, the album title reflects plenty of honesty within this Floridian outfit’s music. Autobiographical lyrics tell their tale within an eclectic framework of searing metallic riffs, pop punk melody, emo rock sensibilities and hair raising scream-core. Indeed ‘Don’t You Fake It’ belies the tender 21 year average age of the band with an ethic and know how that puts many older matched genre bands to shame. TRJA’s music is a mouth-watering hybrid of the best traits associated with bands like Underoath, Story of the Year and The All American Rejects. From the hard edged pop punk of ‘Face Down’ through to the piano led ‘Cat and Mouse’ or the heavy screamo of ‘Atrophy’, TRJA may lack innovation, but push all the right buttons in terms of merging popular rock genres
