QUICK CHORD: Dreamers, Like Us, Me Versus I, and Brawlers
First Posted: 7/1/2014
Sounds like: A mixture of metalcore, hardcore, and post-hardcore that creates a digestible sound that’s also refined.
Fun fact: They are always joking with their drummer Greg. They guys refer to him as “Meg” from “Family Guy” and just pick on him all the time.

Sounds like: Post-hardcore/screamo — their twist on early 2000s post-hardcore with melodic guitar riffs can be very calming in contrast to the vocals.
Fun fact: The band claims that “if they gave out awards for sweatiest band at the end of a show, we would be undefeated.”

Sounds like: Upbeat pop punk that you can sing along with to put you in a happy mood even if the lyrics don’t always reflect that feeling.
Fun fact: The four members hail from Leeds in England but actually all met at a funeral in Harry and Matthew’s hometown of Lincoln. They’ve been a band exactly one year and were offered a record deal after their first-ever show.
