New Music Tuesday: Tapestry - 2015 - An Invisible Boundary, A Set Distance

Tapestry is a three piece screamo band from Singapore. An Invisible Boundary, A Set Distance is their third EP. These two songs are straight ahead screamo with just enough post-rock in the mix so these songs can stretch out and move through multiple parts. These songs build and collapse in on themselves, perhaps searching for some kind of peace in the ensuing chaos. Both Pasel and Sputnik Sweetheart are rather compelling in their desperate drive. If you're looking for some skramz that will satisfy, Tapestry's An Invisible Boundary, A Set Distance will serve well.

Coloured In - 2015 - 2015

Coloured In is a three piece emo band from The United Kingdom. 2015 is their debut EP. These three tracks blend together emo and alt rock. At their best they make me think of what Nobody, Ever would sound like without a focus on emo. The focus here is on big melodic riffs, anthemic singing and some inescapable earworms. Good luck getting the hook of November out of your head anytime and there's no way to escape once 45 really kicks into gear. Obviously there is room to grow but this is a good starting point which wets my appetite for more. If you're looking for a some catchy, kinda groovy emo Coloured In's 2015 will serve well.
