We Are The In Crowd is taking a stand and showing us what Poughkeepsie's coolest is all about with the release of their debut EP Guaranteed To Disagree. Tay Jardine has some killer pop vocals. She and the boys of We Are The In Crowd kick the EP off with "Carry Me Home," a great pop song and a taste of exactly what's to come. "Never Be What You Want" is an upbeat song about staying true to yourself and knowing what's best for you, even in a relationship. Will Pugh of Cartel complements Tay's voice perfectly for the song. "Both Sides of the Story" explores the two sides of a relationship's rough endings; "You aren't quite Satan but I really think I hate you." After the song, the EP becomes a bit repetitive. "Lights Out" is a good but forgettable pop-song, and "For the Win" and "Calendar Pages" have the same effect. "We Need A Break" has a self-explanatory title. It tells the story of a relationship that may have grown apart, enhanced by Tay and Jordan's vocals. It's pretty obvious that this is an incredibly talented group, I just wish the EP had a bit more diversity. I can't wait to hear more from these kids because I think they've got a lot more to show us.
