Hailing from the small but mighty city of Providence, Rhode Island, Fear of Missing Out, also known as FOMO, packed one heck of a punch at their EP release show on July 20. Playing all five songs off of their new EP, titled "2:1" plus a couple of oldies like "Repeat" and "Little Ghost," they filled The Met in Pawtucket, RI with friends and family alike, all who came out to support the hard work and dedication the guys in FOMO have put into this release. They started the night off with "Bittersweet," a song about dealing with all of the indecision and uncertainty that can come with relationships; broke out the beach balls for a fun time with their upbeat anthem "Prize Fighter" about overcoming obstacles and making it out on the other side alive, despite wanting to throw in the towel; and closed out the evening personal/intimate note with "Cerulean," a song about "loving something toxic, something that doesn’t fit into your life despite how hard you try to justify it to yourself or to others, and the fall out that dependency can create within a life." In the room, the feeling was energetic and exciting. The crowd definitely seemed to enjoy all of the new tunes, fresh from the release. The beach balls and Hawaiian shirts added to the fun flair, and it was clear both the band and the crowd were in celebration mode.
