The White Tie Affair may well represent the next level of pop. Hailing from Chicago, the squeaky-clean quintet is perfectly triangulated between Fall Out Boy, the Killers, and *NSync: The new Get In Where You Fit In EP is a nonstop party of swelling rock choruses, buoyant keyboard undertones, so-sweet-they're-sticky harmonies, impossible-to-ignore dance beats, and vocal hooks that are downright insidious. A year from now, they'll be completely forgotten or playing arenas. Regardless, if their MySpace page is any indicator, there'll be a lot of girls at the show.
