Like the well dressed couple hailing a taxi after a relaxing meal at a favorite restaurant, Prawn’s song calls for recollections of “Lazy Eye” by Silversun Pickups. Each of “Why You Always Leave A Note” and “Lazy Eye” begins with a low volume, somewhat distant sounding guitar that leads to a higher volume, crisper lead guitar. The similarity in the starts is visible in the two Soundcloud waveforms (below). There are certainly differences in the two introductory guitars, but the two songs grow even more similar when the cleaner sounding guitar takes charge after the first thirteen to seventeen seconds. However, when Prawn introduces its vocals, the band's song stands on its own, and it has reason for standing sturdy.
Prawn is a band from Ridgewood, New Jersey. The members are Tony Clark (guitar and vocals), Jamie Houghton (drums), Kyle Burns (guitar and vocals), Ryan McKenna (bass and misc.) and Corey Davis (bass and misc.).
