Crows-An-Wra - Kalopsia

If Germany's Monocrhome had taken a more aggressive approach it would sound something very similar to Crows-An-Wra.  The coherent vocal style and melodic guitar work gives this band a very accessible quality which is mixed with some more interesting screamy chaos.

There's some excellent moments of creative musicianship here which spotlight some 'out of the box' song writing style.  I can't help but be impressed by how well these songs are executed.

Nice sensibility is shown as the guitars switch from dreamy and reverb heavy, to a more focused and aggressive onslaught of full chords. I also hear this pattern in the vocals which lend themsleves to being a great judge on when to amp up the intensity or bring it down.  The female vocals on "Heavy Heads" and "Blossom" are executed beautfully as well (and give this another point in the Monochrome direction).
