The Romantic Comedy is certainly a fitting name for the new project (by members of Brooklyn's The Great American Novel), whose debut EP “Let's Be Sad Together” was released in late 2016. The EP features coming of age songs about wasting time ("Ugh"), falling head over heels for someone ("The Thirst") and wanting someone you can’t have ("Let's Be Sad Together," streaming below). Like in the movies the band's moniker is inspired by, these struggles are approached with an upbeat optimism, which musically speaking means "power pop." It looks like the quintet will be headed to Austin in March for the SXSW music festival.
