The Academy Is… Waving Their Lighters Around

A new EP from Chicago’s own The Academy Is… comes out tomorrow, and one track has made its way online prior to its release: “Sputter,” which has backing vocals by Jack’s Mannequin lead singer Andrew McMahon. The song’s something of a grower, with twinkling guitars and a chorus that opens up nice and big. Some music supervisor should snap up this song for a big epic breakup scene soon… [Banana’s Music Club]
