First Class Failure needs a name change, and not because this pop-acoustic duo doesn’t come across as “first class.” Grant Murray and Zac Abukhodair’s emotionally charged vocals and syncopated guitar work definitely warrant top-flight status. What doesn’t fit is the “failure” part. Going on tours of the Midwest and releasing a self-titled online album while working as producers and promoters in the area’s youth music scene is anything but a lemon. Here’s wishing the band’s forthcoming second album results in first-class success.
