Baltimore rock five-piece In Between will release their second EP, Still, on July 9th via No Sleep Records.
Citing influences like Quicksand, Silent Majority, Avail and Lifetime, In Between meld post-punk, post-hardcore and pop-punk styles to create a complex sound that is uniquely their own. Grinding riffs and emotionally charged vocals abound as In Between charge through five new songs on Still, pushing and exploring the boundaries of their music each step of the way.
“We wanted to make a darker, more raw recording,” says French. “Both the band and producer/engineer Taylor Young worked to capture the honest sound of a band playing in a room. We put as much as we could into making each song representative of us as a band.”
The EP’s opener and first released track, “Second Person,” recalls the post-hardcore of the late 90’s with intensely passionate vocals and discordant guitar riffs, while maintaining melodic undertones and accessibility.
"Second Person" was one of the first songs written for Still,” French adds. “It set the tone for the rest of EP with a more grooving and hard hitting sound. The inspiration was to connect DC to Long Island punk.”
