***Of Us Giants***
For fans of: Manchester Orchestra, Death Cab For Cutie, Biffy Clyro and Moving Mountains.
OF US GIANTS recently dropped 'Nova Scotia' on their bandcamp which will see a vinyl release on February 11th, 2014. They play a dreamy mix of emo rock that reminds me of a triple-dose of Biffy Clyro, Manchester Orchestra and Moving Mountains. Honestly, if you know those bands my further descriptions are rendered pretty much useless. They employ poppy/powerful melodies that remind me of Heathers and Biffy Clyro, with the vocalist sounding like a spitting image of Biffy Clyro with some occasional slips into Andy Hull (from Manchester Orchestra) territory. A decent album with some parts seem a little mainstream/forced to me. At times I think I'm listening to Desoto Jones and my interest wavers - but that's probably due to the fact that I listen to music that generally involves screaming.
