Grammer - 2014 - Awesome Knives

Grammer is a five piece emo band from Springfield, Missouri, USA. Awesome Knives is their debut EP. Grammer play a melodic brand of midwestern emo drawing obvious comparisons to bands like American Football or Mineral but stopping there is over simplifying. Grammer also bring a touch of post-hardcore to weird up the songs and add a slight edge of chaos and danger. The guitars are clear and melodic, carrying the melody forward and twinkling while the singer has a reaching voice that glides forwards and can have a nice rasp to it. This is a rock solid foundation on which to construct their own, more unique sound. If you like your emo with a little rasp and some midwestern twinkle, Grammer's Awesome Knives will serve well.
