I'm searching through the Self Promotion forum, and I barely clicked on any threads. Why? Because bands SUCK at picking band names. Looking Glass Wars ... that one isn't so bad, I think to myself.
Looking Glass Wars in a five-piece atmospheric indie rock number from New York. They fill the gaps and holes with full-bodied instrumentation, jazzy guitar tangents (see "Love Someone"), and hearty vocals that casually remind me of a pre-TDAGARIM Jesse Lacey. Singer Brendan Rivera is classy and controlled, the percussion is on point and bouncy, and the keys create a deepening, suspicious effect (see "Endormi Dans La Chambre"). The more I listened, the more I was convinced.
Out now is their full-length The Musician (available on iTunes). This band's got something special, and it's not because their band name is better than average.
