Office: Q & A


Right now, Chicago is a great scene for indie bands, and one of them that has really stuck out is Office. Their brilliant pop songs are the perfect accompaniment to the fluctuating weather of their hometown: they burst with positive, warm energy, but also have a cool, "windy" sound to them that carries you away into their music.

For me, the two standout tracks are The Big Bang Jump! and Dominos. The Big Bang Jump! is an uptempo rock-anthem-like song that invites you to join a new "scene-a millenium mainstream". I love the kinds of songs where the artist/band makes up a new term and basically explains what it means (see Crocodile Rock by Elton John). When listening to Dominos, I think of Coldplay with higher seratonin levels. It starts out with a delightful piano in the background with an upbeat guitar that flows perfectly throughout the song. Check out these songs, and make sure you pick up a copy of their album Q & A.

Listen to The Big Bang Jump!.

Listen to Dominos.

If you like Indie stuff, check out Questionable Content - it's an Indie-music Webcomic, but it's completely hilarious and utterly amazing.
