A pairing of two of the most interesting bands playing melodic hardcore today, Touche Amore and Pianos Become The Teeth. Touche Amore are a thought provoking, passionate band from Los Angeles, CA. Here they offer up the exceptional “Gravity, Metaphorically”, a stripped down and discordant roller coaster of a song. For over four minutes, Touche Amore rattle and buzz through tempo changes and jangly riffs, as vocalist/lyricist Jeremy Bolm pours out his heart and soul in his trademark way. Pianos Become The Teeth are one of the bands leading the latest generation of emotional hardcore/punk. Led by unique vocalist/lyricist Kyle Durfey, they create moving music with a focus on his powerfully poetic story telling capabilities. With this release, Pianos Become The Teeth offer up the song “Hiding”. Meandering melodic guitar work weaves in and out before Durfey expels “There’s no good in your eyes anymore…” telling a weighty and complex tale of the subtle nuances of love and conflict. The song continues to push and pull as emotions do throughout it’s five minute run. Slowly building only to beautifully crash in a way that only Pianos Become The Teeth can.
