“Artistic growth” and “progression” can at times be nebulous terms. What does it truly mean to progress and grow as an artist, or as a collective? The answer can often vary wildly depending on the specific artist — yet what is clear is that true progression can be thrilling to witness. A band pushing themselves to new heights, and reaching their full artistic potential, can open new doors in their career that may never before have seemed possible.
Amarionette continue to build momentum following a busy 2019. The Las Vegas band fuses pop rock, post-hardcore, and R&B, with a catchy twist that fans of any of those genres are sure to enjoy. After the release of last year’s Evolution EP, the band has stayed busy, and are now exclusively premiering the lead single from their upcoming full-length Sunset On This Generation, coming later this year!
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.
Stumbling upon talented up-and-coming bands is one of my greatest pleasures, and I have done just that recently with the exceptionally-striking Half Hearted. I was reeled in with their “Vicious Cycle” video, a compelling one-shot video that scrolled the band’s angsty, charismatic performance. Today, we delve into the band’s debut self-titled record!
