Check Out: The Evangelicals

Bookmark Too Roads Indie Blog

     The Evangelicals.........what to say about the Evangelicals. Well, there is quite a lot to be said about them, they are a very unique group with unique aspects.
    When I think of this band, "Theater Rock" is what comes to mind. Each song seems as if it could synchronize its own small play. There are epic intro's, tempo changes, intriguing melodies and a plethora of effects presented in their music. The lyrics inscribed in the music by falsetto lead singer Josh Jones, in context with all of these things, creates a very unusual but enjoyable style. From the forlorn atmosphere of "Skeleton Man" to the blatant topic of "gettin high" on "Stoned Again", there is a lot to be heard from these guys. 
    For first time listeners, they may be a bit much to consume, but with time and further listening I would imagine them to grow on you. Atleast thats how it worked for me haha. I would definitely check these guys out if you haven't already. They currently have two LP's out: So Gone and The Evening Descends.

It's such a shame that they broke up. Their first LP was def my fav.

But hey, whatever they left behind was great.
