Jonah Matranga's newest outfit it is then. A near legend in the, dare I say it, emo world - leading such bands as Far and Onlinedrawing to great success and also guest starring on many friends' and musicians' releases due to the respect he commands in his occupation Jonah is obviously very talented, let's put it that way.
Gratitude is shaping up to be up there with his best creations yet if 'Drive Away' is anything to go by. It is basically a perfect melodic rock song. A huge spangly chorus, heartfelt lyrics, numerous vocal tones and a song that near epitomises an Orange County soundtrack. A great summer tune. What 'Drive Away' has in common with Far, B-side 'Sadie (acoustic) has in common with Onelinedrawing. Yes it's emo, but it's emo without all the annoying stereotypes the genre's been bunged with in recent times. Old school. Jonah could easily become a household name in 6 months time. That's Gratitude for you.
