Fight! Fight! Fight! sounds young and skews younger: The quintet's MySpace.com page boasts nearly as many fan groups and street teams as there are tracks on this four-song EP. Erica Ross leads the group with clear, measured vocals which never veer into histrionics, and the boys in the band back her up with rudimentary but effective pop-punk licks. This debut EP gives a good impression of the band's MO — the lyrics are assured without being bratty, and the music is catchy if ultimately innocuous. If nothing else, "I Have Five Fingers and One Hand that Says You Shouldn't Mess with My Friends" suggests that the band has taken a few courses at The Pete Wentz Institute of Overwrought Song Titles.
