With a song title like "Cry Cry Cry," you're automatically going to think of old timey country, most likely because of the Johnny Cash song of the same name (although his was "Cry! Cry! Cry!"). The latest single from Rochester, NY's Ben Morey & the Eyes does have some country/Americana twang, but it isn't a country song. "Cry Cry Cry" is more of a singer/songwriter indie rock/pop song. Morey's voice has this insanely smooth feel to it that edges slightly into country but keeping a more indie rock feel to it. It's almost like a Marlon Wayans/Nada Surf hybrid. If that doesn't make most readers of If It's Too Loud... intrigued, I don't know what possibly could.
