"Music is about connecting with people, and that's what we focus on more than anything else," says Transit's vocalist Joe Boynton. Hailing from north shore Boston, Transit is a band that expresses an arresting degree of honesty and individuality in their music. While clearly drawing inspiration from seminal groups such as Saves The Day, as well as the Northeast US pop-punk scenes that all five members grew up in, Transit has swiftly evolved into a group with a more alternative, indie rock sound. "We all grew up listening to a wide variety of music, but bands like Archers of Loaf, Braid, Osker and American Football demonstrated to us that there are always refreshing ways to create a new style and feel," explains guitarist Tim Landers. Illustrating Transit's artistic evolution from one release to the next, early descriptions of the group compared them to Taking Back Sunday and Brand New, and now, more recently, to bands like Death Cab For Cutie and Modest Mouse.
