“Good Morning My Friends” by 1994 was one of the first local albums I was ever exposed to and the first album that the band came out with. The 8 track album, released in 2007, has the nostalgic feel of early 2000s pop-punk like Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, and The Starting Line. Their sound is a blend of catchy vocal lines, upbeat tempos, and a touch of the emotional.
1994 played frequently in Marietta, where I discovered them, and throughout metro-Atlanta. If you want a taste of good local music from back then, this album is a good place to start. They have long since broken up but you can download the album for free on their bandcamp page.
Perfect for fans of: The Academy is…, Blink 182, Fall Out Boy, The Starting Line, Taking Back Sunday
Favorite track: So Close, Sincerely Yours
