Biography

You can go ahead and call Rooney’s new album, Eureka, their declaration of independence. After several years trudging under the weight of a major label deal that never quite fit them right, the Los Angeles band is making a bold, fresh start: Rooney recorded and produced Eureka themselves, and will be releasing the disc June 8th on their own new label, California Dreamin’ Records ...

Editorial Reviews

Rooney released their eponymous debut in 2002 when the median age of the band was 19 years old. Since then, Rooney's irresistible songs have continually captivated fans and critics with what Spin, Details, Entertainment Weekly, Alternative Press, Nylon, The New York Times and Rolling Stone Magazine hail as "elaborate sunny vocal harmonies crowning anthems." EUREKA continues to showcase the band's knack for creating melodic hooks, reverberating guitars and heartfelt harmonies.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eureka! I Have Found It! June 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Rooney is a band I've followed since high school. I've seen them numerous times in concert. I love both of their previous albums. I have to say I was a little worried about this album because of the turmoil (am I being over-dramatic?) that has gone on regarding their split from their record label. After listening to Eureka, I must say my worries were unfounded. It is great! On to the song reviews:

Holdin' On: A great way to set the tone for this album. It seems to be telling us that this is going to be a more introspective and personal album. It still has that "Rooney groove" that makes you want to dance though.

I Can't Get Enough: The first single off of Eureka. To me it's a throwback to the fun songs on the other two albums. Although this band has matured, they still keep that fun, catchy attitude.

Only Friend: This is one of my favorite songs on the album. "It's the same old story, the same old movie, but when you're with me it's a masterpiece." The lyrics are great. The melodies are awesome. I'm not a professional so I don't know how to put into words how much I love this song. Wait -- it just hit the harmony part in my earbuds. Lovely.

Into the Blue: A song by Louie! This song has great imagery. It's kind of trippy and melancholy.

All or Nothing: I don't really connect personally with the lyrics of this song. But it's still a great song to listen to and has a catchy "hook" (is that what the chorus is called?). Not my favorite but still strong.

The Hunch: I love, love, love this song! Go Ned and Taylor! It immediately makes me want to dance. I listen to it at work to make me work faster (and more happily). This song brings that Rooney energy that was kind of missing from the previous songs on Eureka.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun band matures into a Mature, Fun band. June 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
With the release of their third album, "Eureka", Rooney has taken a step, again, in the right direction. With "Calling the World", Rooney, grew up. But now, with "Eureka", they have matured and really came into their own. Does this have a lot to do with them breaking away from Geffen Records and starting their own label, I think so. Just look at the lyrics in "I'm a Terrible Person" (from their debut album) to the lyrics from "Holdin' On". No one can deny the immense growth the band has had in both lyrics and chord progressions. While their first CD was about the fun of LA and being young and in a rock band, "Eureka" is about growing up and facing what life has throw at you- the good and all the bad. If you are a fan of this always catchy band ("I Can't Get Enough" is one of the bands catchiest songs, referencing back to "I'm Shakin'" and "Sorry Sorry"), you will love to see the boys finally entering their own stride. Rooney has and, with "Eureka", proves to always be: fun California sunshine rock n roll. Even if you are not a fan, this is a great place to start. Congrats guys on a great, self produced, mature, album. Fans will love it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Power pop at its best July 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Even though the term power pop disappeared with the 1980s, many bands still utilize the sound--an upbeat, hook-filled concoction that sounds good forever. Rooney has been making great albums for a few years and this one doesn't disappoint. Numerous favorite tracks here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Since Their Debut July 15, 2010
By HJC
Format:Audio CD
Someone's been digging through their parents' 70's vinyl, and it's a very good thing. Rooney is back with its strongest offering to date, a solid, retro album with pop instincts not exhibited since the band's debut featuring the magnificent "Blueside." Clearly the band has been through a lot these past few years, giving Eureka a maturity absent from Rooney's previous releases. It's a chronicle of life, disappointment and loyalty, making the listener sense that much of what they hear is autobiographical. The most surprising song on the album is the political "Stars and Stripes," a dance (!) tune about finding peace in a post-9/11 world. Rooney's newfound depth isn't limited to words, either. Schwartzman's voice is smooth, enunciated and perfectly matched with tight production and musicianship. The self-produced album is diverse and contains stylistic homages to Jeff Lynne ("Holdin' On"), Lou Reed ("You're What I'm Looking For,") and slide guitars that would make George Harrison proud. With the exception of ballad "Into The Blue," the music is bouncing and happy, with enough clever wording to make your singing as much fun as the dancing. Welcome back, Rooney. 5 stars.
