I agree man, relying ok people is very difficult. My guitarist couldn't ashford the gas money to come practice so that was a huge bummer. I'm into heavy metal and really chill indie stuff. My favorite bands are death cab for cutie, blind pilot, the shins. Heavy metal stuff I love demon hunter, born of osiris, and disarmonia mundi. My band had the sound similar to chevelle, shinedown, and probably sick puppies. But my lyric style I can't compare to anything off the to of my head. Most songs are about relationships haha.
I'll check out your songs on here as well. You ever write any poetry?
That's cool, I've met Ben Gibbard a few times! He's related to someone I know. Definitely not the same style as me, well I dig the Indie stuff but not a huge metal person... I'm really into Alternative, Pop-Punk, Indie Rock stuff. My favorite band is The Dangerous Summer.
Ummm like free-verse, form, what kind of poetry?
I have written Sonnets, Villanelles, Sestinas, free-verse, and Cinquains before. I took a few poetry classes at my college, but lyrics are and always will be my favorite for of writing! I know a lot of music that the lyrics aren't about relationships, actually. But I know what you mean, it's more difficult to find stuff that isn't.
