Who It Is: Lyra - Past Imperfect; Suspended Soul Tapes & Records (2014)
What It Sounds Like: Screamo with lots of hardcore influences
Lyra is a fairly new screamo band from Providence, Rhode Island who have had one other release under their belt besides their new LP Past Imperfect and from the sounds of it, the band is absolutely starting to hone and craft their unique style, so much that I honestly couldn’t think of any bands to compare them to. Granted I haven’t been horribly tenured in the knowledge of screamo history for too long, I know enough to thoroughly enjoy everything this band has put out so far, and their newest release is no different.
Wow, this is great review! Thank you Funeral Sounds! We’ll be writing again very very soon!
Yesterday You Blew It! were robbed in San Antonio. Any support that can be offered to them would be very appreciated.
TX friends!! help out our friends in You Blew It!! also, spread the word!
Such a bummer. Help out some homies.
Jon’s other band is hitting the road in August!
Weak Teeth and Bloodpheasant are hitting the road next month. Make sure you go see them if you are in those areas.
