  4. A clip of the opener can be found here:


    Always gets a little bummed when bands release openers as pre-release tracks, something about putting on a high anticipated album for the first time and having the first track blow you away. Probably will hold off on listening when they release the full song.

    I'll see what I can do, haha
     
  7. Didn't realize there was another song released on their bandcamp. On first listen, not as into it as I am Tangerine. Hopefully I like it a little more in context.

    Your Favourite Dream is a banger. Tangerine is good too. Can't wait for this album to drop. Wish it came out today!

  11. Oh really? I had no idea. What's the first one called? I'll have to look it up!

    It's on their bandcamp:

     
  13. Sweet! I'll give that one a listen sometime. Totally missed that when on their Bandcamp earlier (I was on mobile, so that could have something to do with it).

    My friend saw them at Warped Tour yesterday, and told me to watch out for them.

    Not bad.

    My first thought after listening to this is that Down in the Dark is 2016's Milk. There's an easy comparison with Better Off's album from last year. The album has its highs, but blends together at times. Just hopefully the guys in this band aren't as shitty as Better Off. I'll definitely give it more listens to get a better feel for it.
     
  16. Thank you for posting in here, I had no idea it leaked haha. Was trying to figure out what to listen to on my bike ride tonight and now I know!

  17. Enjoyed my first listen of this a lot, despite the not so great leak quality. Really cohesive album, which is great. Sort of a double edged sword because I loved the variety in sound on the last EP, but the moody vibe that covers this entire album isn't a bad trade-off. The run from Tangerine to Slip was my favorite part of the record on first listen. Really excited to spend some more time with this.

    Ah ok. And this album is way better than that Better Off album.

    I don't know anything about that Better Off band tbh I'm all about Safe to Say!

    This album is incredible and flows perfectly. Dynamics everywhere. Emotional to the millionth degree. From the darkness of "Louver" to the beautiful "Hiraeth," there isn't a dull moment. Definitely taking a page from the Brand New playbook but still creating a sound unique to them unlike Citizen's last record which just attempted to copy and failed.
