Like most individuals my taste in music has evolved with my age. At a very young age back in 1992-1994, I became swept by the 'grunge' scene, later my spirits were captured by what I will label (disdainfully) New Punk. For a long time now I have been emotionally drawn to indie rock or what most woul.
Like most individuals my taste in music has evolved with my age. At a very young age back in 1992-1994, I became swept by the 'grunge' scene, later my spirits were captured by what I will label (disdainfully) New Punk. For a long time now I have been emotionally drawn to indie rock or what most would call ‘emo’, not to come off as totally cliché but it’s the aging. In this day and age the term ‘emo’ is loosely thrown around to pretty much define any post-hardcore indie rock band that has/will produce a CD. I would consider my self anything but a trend setter, however more than that… I hate to be trendy. I’m not one of those people who define themselves by their music or through their clothes, but one thing about trends is that they end. And fellow listeners, the sun has set on emo. It’s the new trend, its popular, and its ‘sweeping the continent’. Must I cite new pop classics like Jimmy Eat World – The Middle? Moving on, this new trend has left me feeling rather empty, so about a year ago I began to dabble in hardcore, post-hardcore… whatever you want to label it. Unbelievably more talented than ‘new metal’, way less cock than cock-rock, and lyrics that would draw a tear as quick as any Pedro The Lion song.
