Heart On My Sleeve - Stand​-​by, We're Going In For Life

Based on the name, Heart On My Sleeve pretty much gives you exactly what you would expect. What you're going to get here is four songs of heart wrenching emo with heavy screams and dramatic melodies.

Though the name makes it easy to predict what this will sound like, you still get a quality set of songs that have been obviously crafted by some folks who are well acquainted with this particular genre and style.  I appreciate when this band takes things in their upbeat direction and you can hear this on songs like "Forever Summer" and "Bitter Verses".

This music is less about chaos and more concentrated on melody and dynamics.  Think of bands similar to Last Letters or Funeral Diner for better comparison.  All in all, not a bad batch of songs.

Have a listen here.
