Are Artists In the Scene Striving For the Same Voice?

Posted by - 06:40 PM on 01/29/08
The December '07 issue of SPIN Magazine featured an article about the vocals of the scene and how there is only one sound that all vocalists are striving for. Click here to read it. If you click "1-Page" on the top menu, the text will be large enough to read on-screen.

I read this a few weeks ago and thought itd be interesting to post on here. Although the article comes off snobby at times it couldn't be more true.

Article is void due to the fact they associated Bush and Silverchair with Creed and 3 Doors Down.

I don't see how they can associate Max Bemis with the other vocalists. His voice is actually quite unique.

This is true.

Chris from Dashboard also has incredible range. Chris from Saves The Day looks like Perez Hilton.

His live shows are a testament to that. Spin Magazine enjoys talking out of their ass anyways.

Anyone ever use one of those humidifiers before singing? I've been interested to try one.

Not to me. As much as I like Say Anything now I just couldn't get into them at first cause of the voice. They do have a lot going for them compared to most bands in the scene despite the generic emo voice.

I dont see how those artists sound similar. But some bands do have same sounding voices;starting line/moneen, Muse and Radiohead.

not sure why Permanent Me was even citied among those bands in the beginning of the article...that made absolutely no sense to me.

other than that, i'm surprised they didn't talk about "The Long Island Sound" with bands such as TBS, Brand News, Glassjaw, and Envy on the Coast.

There are only a select few vocalists who can pull off that whiney- pop punk sound and I think it's helped to start separate some from the pack. And I don't know why they included Motion City (plus a few others) out there, Justin has a really unique voice that just so happens to be high pitched.

There is definitely a sound that lots of the vocalists from these faux-screamo bands are going for.
