Last Letters - From Her and Here
The production is pretty well executed and professional. All the instruments come through pretty clear. The vocals may be a touch too high for me, but they seem to be showcased here much in the same way bands of this type have been known to do.
For the most part the band is keeping things mid tempo, however there are a few detours. The fast beat in "The Future is Fading/The Past is Still Begging" is an interesting break. Still, the band keeps the mid tempo speed without sounding repetitive or boring. The dynamics are in all the right places and the guitar melodies do a great job of heightening the urgency and emotion. There's some solid drum work here that also hits in all the right places to convey the songs path. I can see the vocal placement here harvesting a good deal of crowd participation.
Impressive stuff here. Have a listen.
