Lombard Illinois Pop/Rock band, Plain White T’s are releasing the second single from their latest album, Wonders Of The Younger. That song is a fun mid-tempo song called “Boomerang.” It continues to show how the “Wonders” album is a project of pushing  boundries and reinvention for the group. It follows the album’s first single, “Rhythm Of Love”, which was one of the group’s first singles to be entirely written and performed by the group’s back up vocalist, Tim Lopez.. “Rhythm Of Love”‘s tropical melodic and laid back vibe would explain why it was used to set the mood in a romantic scene in the recent Dan Akroyd, Justin Timberlake film Yogi Bear. You also may remember the song was used in the season two premiere of NBC’s hit show, Parenthood. It is a song that was unlike anything the band has done before, and that was sure to set the pace for the rest of the project and any forthcoming new singles. 

“Boomerang” is another great example of the group’s intended growth on the album that has been mentioned. Lead singer, Tom Higgenson had this to say about the album

“The scope is a lot bigger than anything we’ve done before,”  “We definitely tried to get out of our comfort zone. Not that we wanted to sound like a different band. But we wanted to push ourselves outside of what the Plain White T’s are accustomed to–exploring different arrangements and striving to be more adventurous and exciting lyrically, musically and thematically. It all has to give you that epic feeling that we wanted the album to have. Even the performances that we’re doing and the video we made has to have that slightly surreal, slightly fantastic kind of vibe to it.”

The album gets off to a faster start with “Irrational Anthem,” a sort of thematic overture for the record. “Lyrically,” says Higgenson, “I think it says exactly what I want the album to say. I think the line that sums up the whole album is Let your mind go anywhere it wants to. Don’t lose your imagination. Don’t get so wrapped up in your day-to-day life that you forget to dream or be creative, or forget to recapture those things or at least remember them. That’s the beauty of life. I’m a very nostalgic guy, so a lot of where my head lives is in memories. I spend a lot of my time looking back and smiling at past things that have happened in my life.”  Keeping all this in mind, the album was without a doubt appropriatley titled, The Wonders Of The Younger.

See if Tom and the guys continued to capture that theme in the new single’s video, which was released just last month. Enjoy the new and imporved nelodic and free sound of Plain White T’s on “Boomerang”!
