What’s Mine at Twilight

Tooth & Nail

This moves along the lines of what you would expect from a young, noisy hardcore band that finds themselves on Tooth & Nail. Some excellent dynamics moving into the mix, and vocals that hit like a scream and then dive into smooth emo flow. Poetic lyrics hitting on subjects of love and loss, and not pulling any punches. Driving hard truth through tight emotion. Drums fly, guitars soar, and swoop, the bass line holds steady, and the vocals wrap it all up. Pushing against the edge of sound sometimes, high and tight, and almost falling into noise, but the songs curve into some post punk beauty right before it hits.
