U.K quintet offers up a year´s worth of blood, sweat and tears on their new mini album
Blending jagged post-hardcore guitars with layers of shimmering atmospherics and ambient interludes that hark fondly back to Thrice's 'Alchemy Index' masterstrokes, A World Defined are perhaps most, ahem, defined by the inimitable vocals of frontman Liam Reeves. Part impassioned, soulful howl, part haunting drawl, Reeves’ vocals bridge the tonal chasm between alternative and indie rarely explored by bands of either persuasion, granting the band’s enveloping, winding songwriting a unique and compelling edge.
Their new album "In absence" will be out March 24.
