Advisory

Sun Sea Sky

This Wisconsin trio pushes out some mean emo tunes. Like smooth soaring vocals that twist into screams, breaking through the stop start rhythm section and flying higher than the soaring guitar. Not totally polished at their sound, but passionate. Overdramatic, but that’s to be expected. Less punk and more rock, but the anger flows through the sky, pushing lyrics like the anguish of poetry. “I’ll suffocate; I can’t breathe, I’m drowning/Gone tomorrow, I’ll wait today•” There’s a hint of an ache, and the stain of beauty, and the sound that fills a thousand broken windows, looking out.
