Somerset, MA pop-punk band Ten Cents Short (for fans of: Four Year Strong, The Wonder Years, State Champs) are bring punchy lyrics and a hard-hitting sound to audiences with their sophomore EP, Major Steps, Minor Setbacks, which is set to release this summer.
“The first half of the song basically portrays a confident and sarcastic mindset of convincing yourself that you don’t need someone and life will be fine without them,” says drummer Jonathan Costa of “Beggars”. “But as as the song progresses, you start to realize more and more that you really miss that person and you’re having trouble moving on without them. The process of getting on with your life isn’t as easy as you expected.“
The band worked with Four Year Strong‘s Alan Day to produce and co-write the track, after passing along their album to Alan at the Four Year Strong tent at Warped Tour 2014. In what can only be described as a dream scenario, the band later heard from Alan who expressed interest in working with them. The remaining four songs their sophomore EP were co-written, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Chris Piquette at No Boundaries Studios. The video for “Beggars” was created by Zack Williams of ZW Multimedia
