Listening to The FORZ's sophomore album Running From The Past, it's hard not to see the irony in the title. The brain child of songwriting duo Cole Tyler and Anthony Graziano, the Boston power pop quartet has embraced a wonderfully Beatles-esque/surf rock dynamic, bringing a modern energy to a tried and true formula of quality songwriting and simple, catchy melodies. All four members share the title of lead singer, adding an extra layer of variety in their vocal stylings. If you're in the mood for some high-energy nostalgia, help Boston's fab four ring in the New Year at Sally O'Brien's on 12/31. -Brian Varneke
