Case In Theory: Changes EP

When you’re introduced to a band who credits life, art, zombie movies and tacos as their influences (see: Myspace), one must expect a unique blend of styles, genres, and of course, personality.

Friends since high school, Jonathan Posadas (lead vocals/guitar) and Tadeo Ramirez (guitar) began writing songs together in early 2006. By the end of the year Jamin Bracken (drums) and Ben Everett (bass) were both brought on board; the four formed Case In Theory (CIT), three words randomly said by Bracken one night that stuck.

The band’s sound is an infusion of indie-rock and alternative, with climactic choruses and heavy emotion. When talent is ripping at the seams, it’s inevitable that a band like this will catch the ears of music lovers near and far. CIT has expanded their geographical presence throughout California with performances around the Bay Area and in Southern California venues such as the infamous Viper Room in Los Angeles. With a full-length album in the works, CIT promises to be a contender in the big, bad, awesome world of live music.

Available now on iTunes, “Changes” is the band’s second EP and it showcases the variety of styles and represented CIT’s overall sound. The album features “Stand Still,” “Foreign Lands (Day Dream...),” and “Righteous Path.” The band is heavily inspired by the life, love, and everyday lessons of its members. Radio-friendly, “Stand Still,” is a song about the feeling of being scrutinized and judged by others when putting yourself out there.
