Earlier this week, alternative rock band, The Academic began streaming their debut single, “Different,” on Soundcloud. “Different” is super catchy combining all the best qualities from the current leaders of alt-rock into one song. From Craig Fitzgerald’s lead vocals taking on an almost Nick Petricca vibe circa WALK THE MOON’s self titled…
