TRACE Cyrus, big brother of 16-year-old megastar Miley, is breaking the Disney mould by modelling his band on gloom popsters Depeche Mode.

The tattooed 20-year-old, who is the frontman of American foursome Metro Station, said: “Depeche Mode are amazing. They’re a major influence.”

In Malta to perform at the Isle of MTV Festival, Trace said Jacko’s untimely passing has highlighted the power of pop music. He said: “There are people who say, ‘It’s just pop,’ that it’s temporary and doesn’t matter. But it’s so important in people’s lives. We’re not ashamed to be a pop band.”

And Trace said the boyband have as many male fans as girls, “because they know there are chicks at our shows!”

Dallas Observer: This Or That- Metro Station? Or Just Another Crappy Local Band?

4 02 2009

This is a bit offensive to all Metro Station Fans. Feel free to read it, or not.

Welcome to This or That, the weekly segment here on DC9 where we stream an unmarked song and ask, simply enough, “Is this [POP BAND X] or just another crappy local band?”

Why? Because we don’t think you’ll be able to tell the difference between the real thing and the crappy, cheap knockoff.

[Editor’s Note: Before we get started this week, an apology: I’ve been really bad about remembering to do this lately, and I know there are a bunch of readers who get a kick out of it, so… my bad. Won’t happen again. Until, y’know, it does.]

If you don’t recognize the name Metro Station (pictured above), that’s fine. No one’s gonna come after you with torches or anything. Well, no one except for delusional Miley Cyrus fans, as, yep, Metro Station just happens fronted by the tween superstar’s older broseph, Trace.

But there’s more to Metro Station than just that, actually; the band scored a big-time Top 40 radio hit with the admittedly kinda-catchy tune “Shake It” in 2008–even before most people made the Cyrus last name connection. And chances are you’ve likely heard the song before–if not on the radio, in dance clubs or in the gym or at the mall or…well, wherever, really. Point is, it’s been all over. And the band’s follow-up single, “Seventeen Forever” has even had some moderate success, too.

So, the question this week, dear Guessers: Is this week’s track a deep cut from the band’s self-titled debut release, and maybe a potential candidate for a future radio single down the line? Or is this just the work of any number of local band’s striving for the same sound?

You be the judge…

As always, post your best guesses in the comments section, and we’ll review the answer next week (promise!). Meanwhile for those of you still pondering the answer to the last This or That game, well, you’ll just have to jump for the Big Reveal…

Actually, synth and all, it was a new song from The All-American Rejects: “The Wind Blows”, a track off the band’s latest release, When The World Comes Down. Go figure, right? Oh, and for those counting at home, commenter Jordan Like The River has failed to successfully guess in any of these games since the first one. Maybe this week’s is easier? We’ll see…
