Chicago-based rock troupe 1997 employ a male-female vocal dynamic which allows their latest album On The Run to reach soaring emotional depths and heights. Throw in bits of roots rock laden with indie rock pretense on cuts like the glistening “I Will Always Find You” and the feisty “4 AM Conversation,” giving bands like Taking Back Sunday a run for their money in the call and response vocal department. If you dig bands like Straylight Run and Jimmy Eat World, there’s a good chance this band will win you over. www.victoryrecords.com – Mike SOS
