Following their release of Black Lung in 2019, Archers have released their newest single Making Eyes.
Making Eyes blends Archers’ traditional post-hardcore sound with a slow melodic intro similar to bands like Palisades and Emarosa’s newest album, Peach Club. The melodic intro builds as the song progresses and introduces the story. The song really picks up when the second verse hits that leads into a heavier chorus with a thundering breakdown and a powerful key change that really makes the whole song come together in full force.
On the heels of more than 24 million streams of their new album Beautiful Oblivion (which received high marks from us, to be sure) and a successful Fall 2019 headline tour, Issues have shared the colorful and striking video for “Rain“.
Fans of Australian progressive band Closure in Moscow have become accustomed to patience. The group’s last release, the phenomenal Pink Lemonade, dropped back in 2014. Since then, they have provided sporadic updates on new music, with their diehard fans waiting feverishly for any concrete signs of progress. But now, it appears the band has reached a major milestone.
When Michigan’s Fireworks announced an “indefinite hiatus” in 2015, it seemed to spell the premature end of one of punk/emo music’s most promising new acts. 2014’s Oh, Common Life saw the band juxtaposing frontman David Mackinder’s emotive tales of heartache and loss with an expanding musical pallet of indie rock influences — and just as they seemed poised for a breakthrough, they were gone.
