"Stop Dreaming, Start Playing" Album Review Room On The 3rd Floor are a Pop Punk band from Italy who recently released this full length album. There's a ton of buzz about this album so let's dive in and see what they're all about. The opener "Like My Fave Bands" kicks right into high gear. The track brings to mind the Punk intensity of NOFX. The little breakdown halfway through is a nice addition and ramps up the energy level even further. The track is a solid opener that helps set the tone of the album. "Unrequited Love" has a Blink 182 vibe to it as its Poppy as well as having a more traditional Punk high energy. It's highly infectious and should be on everyone's radar. "I Hope That You Will Hear This Song" has an immediate early Green Day influence. The track is controlled Pop Punk chaos. There's a soaring chorus on the track that elevates the track to an even higher level. The passion just pours out of the track like crazy. After a slow deliberate intro, "Pumpkin's Parade" drives home the fact that the band can unleash catchy melodies along with the melodic Punk riffs that just shred. It's an excellent track that showcases great range. "Christmas In August" is more of a ballad of a track. The emotion is on full display on the track for all to see. "The First Song I Write For You" keeps the pace as a slower level as it is an acoustic track that'll give you all the feels. "Little Girl" has a nice rockin' vibe to it as its slow but ramps up akin to Weezer. It's a different side of the band and it works perfectly. "From Morning Until Night" features a tremendous amount of layers. It starts off slow before erupting into a wall of sound that blows the doors off the album. It's a real treat of a track and should be heard right away. "Get Out Of My Face" is a romp through the Pop Punk wilderness. It's a track that'll bring to mind Good Charlotte as it knows when to crank the energy level to 11 as well as having the hook that'll get stuck in your head for days. "Singin' In The Sun" features stellar guitar work throughout the track. It's an upbeat track that's perfect for blasting full volume in the Summer. Crank it loud and enjoy the awesome goodness! "Where Did The Time Go" takes things down a couple notches in the energy department. The track methodically keeps the listener along on the audio journey. "Music Speaks" is a mostly instrumental track that only has vocals later in the track. It's a beautiful track and keeps the variety coming. The last two tracks are acoustic versions of previous tracks "Like My Fave Bands" and "I Hope That You Will Hear This Song". The tracks are nice chilled back renditions of the two normally upbeat versions. They have such a knack for creating awesome ballads. The band have their own distinct style of Pop Punk and that's such an incredible feat. Keep listening and look out for bigger things coming from Room On The 3rd Floor.

Verdict:
Room On The 3rd Floor bring all the Pop Punk goodness with their full length album.

-Interview- (6/13/17)
1. How did you get started with music and how did you develop your sound? Who thought of the name "Room On The 3rd Floor” and is there any meaning behind it?

In our “first period” me (Alex) and my brother Andy started only as a cover band! Then we've started writing some original tunes in the style of our favourites artists, like Simple Plan, Good Charlotte, Green Day, All Time Low, Blink 182, McBusted... we've wrote for an year and after the release of our debut album "Stop Dreaming,Start Playing", Tom and Gio joined the band as guitarists. Alex found the name for the band being inspired by the place where it all started, the room on the third floor, the brother's bedroom. All the music we’ve discovered, we’ve loved, we’ve sung (and now created!) was always located in our room. Everything is here. Everytime we enter in our room we can see what’ve made us. Another inspiration behind our name comes from the first band we’ve ever covered, McFly. As their band is born in a hotel room on the 3rd floor, also our band is born in our bedroom on the 3rd floor! McFly’s song, and their first album, is called “Room On The Third Floor” so: which name could have been better for us?


2. What do you want listeners to take away from your "Stop Dreaming, Start Playing" album?

We only want to show to the listeners what music does and means to us! We would like to inspire them and to share emotions,power,joy and happiness! Our songs has different "faces",and every song has a story behind it.


3. What can people expect from your live show?

Fun for sure, involvement, romantic and emotional moments and also some fails...!


4. What's your favorite track to play live?

Tom's favourite song to play live is "Like My Fave Bands", our first song we wrote that shows perfectly our music style.

Andy's favourite song to perform is "Unrequited Love", track #2 of our "Stop Dreaming,Start Playing", a great mix of catchy vocal melody and a classic pop-punk style.

Alex's favourite songs to play live are "The First Song I Write For You", which creates an emotional and romantic atmosphere on stage, because it has a special meaning to him, and also a new song called "Wasting Time" from our second album that will be in work soon!

Gio's favourite is "From Morning Until Night", a song that start like a ballad and then explodes into a rebellious and powerful anthem against preconceptions.


5. Who are three bands you’d like to tour with?

Obviously our favorite bands, Simple Plan, Good Charlotte and Green Day, but also bands that are in the new pop-punk scene like Neck Deep, The Bottom Line and As It Is.


6. Any crazy show stories?

During our debut show we had a crazy show moment...We've played 10 seconds of one of our songs in three different tunings at the same time...yeah.!


7. What’s your take on the current state of Pop Punk?

We think that there are two different styles of this genre. To be honest we prefer the new stuff of pop-punk veterans to the new wave of pop-punk bands.


8. What’s the current music scene like there in Italy both locally and country wide?

Sadly in Italy our genre is almost completed ignored, infact we hope we can "land" in states outside our country,like U.S.A and U.K, where this genre is surely most appreciated.


9. What’s your take on legal/illegal music downloading?

Taking legally music download guarantees studio quality and it's a symbolic way to show support to the bands.


10. What’s next for Room On The 3rd Floor?

We are writing some new stuff to start to work on our second album and at the same time we are focused on our live shows!


11.Any shoutouts?

We really want to give a shoutout to our friend BrandonLowe, a young italian DJ/Producer. He always supports us and our work,and we do the same to him. He is an Alex's friend since they were kids, and their friendship is so strong especially thanks to the power of music!
