When Arizona intelli-pop band The Format broke up a few months ago, a little part of my heart broke. I loved those guys; the homemade “Format Sunny Supermix” is still a superstar on my car radio, all summer every summer.
Well, hooray hooray for some good news before this summer ends: lead singer Nate Ruess has a new band, called simply “fun.” Strike two on the not good for Googling, guys. They’re trying to undermine my whole system of band data gathering. Subversive.
But hey, this new demo is just great; he doesn’t care to be forgiven, he only wants to be forgotten. Read more about the formation of the new band in a blog post from Nate, and listen to this sweet tune. It’s good to hear his voice again.
