Post #195: The Submarines - "Brighter Discontent" and "1940"

Post #195: I will be leaving shortly for the Brett Dennen show at the Pantages Theater in downtown Minneapolis.

I had the opportunity to see Brett play at the Varsity Theater a couple of years ago, so I know what to expect. It is pretty safe to assume that I won't be let down.

Tonight will also bring the opportunity to see The Submarines, whom I was not familiar with until I saw them as being the openers.

John Dragonetti and Blake Hazard were working as solo artists in Boston when they were introduced by a mutual friend. After dating for 4 years, they broke up, only then to take a different direction than most failed relationships. They decided to try writing music together which led to their 2006 debut album, Declare a New State!.

This is where you will find "Brilliant Discontent".  (Be patient as their is about a 50 second intro to the video).

They would go on to release an EP, and two more full length albums, their most recent Love Notes/Letter Bombs, being released in April of this year  Their music would also be featured in TV commercial spots, soundtracks (like Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist), and a guest spot doing the "Little Boxes" theme for the show Weeds.

You can find "1940" on their 2008 release Honeysuckle Weeks.
