Third Class

Get your indie pop funk on this summer with Third Class, a trio originating from Ohio in 1999. The group just raised $2,000 from local businesses, fans, and friends in Ohio/Pennsylvania in order to make their newest EP, “12 and 9” free to the public.

Lee Boyle (lead vocals, keyboard, 2-string guitar), speaks to the meaning of the EP’s title: “The title "12 And 9" comes from reminiscing about childhood, as in the ages of 12 and 9.  The title track is a love song which deals heavily with feeling doomed as a child who realizes his or her homosexuality and feels like an outcast.  "When I was 12 and you were 9, I never thought I'd look behind and say that I was satisfied with my own life, after all" is a line in the song that states relief in surviving social stigmas, growing up, and living life happily. This ties in with the other 5 songs on the EP as an overall theme of dream fulfillment and childhood.  Many of the lyrics are, in one way or another, about coming of age and looking back on life.”
