“New school power pop” group The Click Five was formed in 2003 in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts. The quintet, none of whom are over the age of 23, are a unique bunch. Their Beatles-inspired suits are easily distinguishable. Another distinction is in their music, such as the layered five-part harmonies in their songs.
The Berklee School of Music students completed The Click Five when Joey Zehr recommended frontman Eric Dill for the band. The band stayed in clubs in Boston for months, earning themselves spots in acts with Alanis Morissette
and Fleetwood Mac, among others. They also opened for Ashlee Simpson
in her 2005 North American tour.
Their debut album Greetings From Imrie House
gives eleven inviting reasons to become a fan of the band. It includes such songs like the balladry of “I’ll Take My Chances,” the corporeal beat of “Resign,” and even a cover of “Lies,” by the Thompson Twins
. The album peaked at #15 on the Billboard 100 charts.
