Twelve Hour Turn
Bend Break Spill
Starting out with an emo-sounding mood, the band quickly shreds that image and moves into strong, harsh, and slightly sparse hardcore angst. Not like fast and raging, but dynamic, melodic, and overflowing with emotion. The strands of guitar sound curl like sonic smoke. The drums play out passion in rhythm. The bass keeps its movements between the two, and the vocals scream out thoughts and ideas that move like reality. It pulls against you, makes you feel. Sadness and anger and still hope for the future. Four songs that say so much, and when the last song finishes, you’re out of breath, gasping for air, wanting more.
