The Reptilian - 2008 - We Have Become

The Reptilian are a three piece band from Kalamazoo Michigan. They play a really awesome brand of indie rock that borrows liberally from the emo side of things. Lots of finger tapping,  lots of emotional shouting and bucket loads of melody. They play with the likes of Innards, Jowls, Annabel, ​Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate​/ & Joie De Vivre.

This ep is old, I think it's their second release after a four way split with Lautrec, Boy Problems & Osceola. They had four members at that time so they don't play these songs live any more but three of these songs are among my favourites.
