The bloggers at MTV's Buzzworthy are gushing over the new single from Canton band TwentyForSeven.
"All I Ever Wanted," a new song released by the band, earned high marks on the MTV blog.
"Actually, we're pretty positive this jam's about to become the kind of Friday night getting-ready jam that'll make you smear your eyeliner because you'll be jumping around in front of the mirror as you apply!" blogger Jenna Haley Rubenstein wrote.
The MTV shout-out isn't the Canton quartet's first brush with fame, however. The band, which includes Rajiv Dhall, Matt Pastor, Blake Hayes and Corey DeLuca, were hand-picked this summer for the E! network reality program Opening Act.
In the episode featuring TwentyForSeven, the band members received coaching leading up to a coveted gig opening for chart-topping hip-hop/pop group Gym Class Heroes.
Dhall said in a July interview with Plymouth-Canton Patch that TwentyForSeven began by playing variety shows at high schools while the band members were seniors at Plymouth-Canton Educational Park.
The song "All I Ever Wanted" comes from the band's new Forget the World EP, which Buzzworthy describes as "a sugary-sweet, feel-good pop record that reminds us a little bit of Asher Monroe and Hot Chelle Rae mixed with a dash of One Direction."

The band also has released a video for new Christmas song, "Merry Christmas, Come Home," which we've embedded here.
