Hey Tom, thanks a ton for all the kind words. - souvenirs.
Souvenirs hail from Carpinteria, California and play an interesting indie and emo hybrid, drawing upon 90’s emo influences such as Braid and The Promise Ring. ‘Tired Of Defending You,’ their debut EP, is dreamy, melancholic and quite frankly beautiful.
The mood for the EP is set with brooding opening track ‘Port Authority’ which oozes 90’s emo angst. Everything about the guitars, the vocals and the sound overall could be lifted from an early Saves The Day or Jimmy Eat World record but they should not be written off as throwbacks as songs like ‘Sucker’ and ‘Sinker’ show a fresh approach to this sound with almost indie rock guitars, multiple tempo changes and heartfelt, clever lyrics.
