Tawny Peaks - 2014 - In Silver River

Tawny Peaks is a six piece emo band from Montclair, New Jersey. In Silver River is their second and final LP. Tawny Peaks play a melodic, brand of emo punk that brings in some indie rock for flavouring. The main singer has a solid voice that reminds me of Shotgun Jimmie or Lou Reed and the female vocals are quite a nice touch. The music is slightly twinkly but never leaves behind the indie punk rock base. Songs like Bending Time and Portrait Of Pushkin will get stuck deep in your head. The sequencing is a bit off, making the album a tad uneven but it comes together nicely in the end. If you're looking for some emo with a little bit of twinkle and a low down groove, Tawny Peaks In Silver River will serve well.
