Bands I’ve been listening to a lot lately! Vales, Mahria, Oathbreaker, Rolo Tomassi and Punch.
Vales are one of my favourite bands and I love Rolo Tomassi, however recently I got introduced to 3 bands with women singers/screamers. I really love the way a woman’s voice sounds screaming compared to a man (even though I love male screamers just as much) and it has really inspired me to learn how to do it! So I’ve started doing a research and practicing exercises.
Anyway, I love these bands and you should give them a listen!
The fine folks at newnoisemagazine gave Vales Wilt & Rise a great 4/5 review!
Now playing - Vales - Wilt & Rise!
After nearly a year of delays, the incredible debut full length Wilt & Rise by Cornwall, UK’s VALES is finally being released. Recorded by Alex Estrada (Touché Amoré, Joyce Manor), Wilt & Rise captures the spirit and sound of the “screamo” resurgence, while putting a unique twist on the sound unlike anyone else in the genre.
6131 Records will be releasing Wilt & Rise digitally worldwide on February 18th, with our friends at FITA Records handling a vinyl LP release in the UK, due out in March.
