The Cardboard Swords, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, know how to write a good pop song. Led by singer/guitarist Tyler DeCoeur, their indie-pop anthems ooze sincerity and honesty, with Decoeur's witty half-speaking/half-singing delivery slipping in and out of melodic guitars and sliding tempos. Whether it's singing about the looking for the love of your life or a late-night hang with your friends, The Cardboard Swords are the modern young everyman - proving that writing what you know will connect with a much larger audience. An audience that feels every word and belts out every song as it quickly becomes the soundtrack of their life. A strong debut album by a premiere talent.
