Not originators obviously, but I feel like turnover and the rest of these bands formed as a direct result. Then title fight somewhat changes their sound, records with will yip, etc and this band follows suit
The thing I like about this trend as appose to say dubstep or scene metal which both have plagued the music scene for the past couple of years, is that I could play a track from Title Fight, B&C, Basement, Turnover, Citizen, Daylight or Seahaven and know who I was listening to. Sure, most of them follow a similar song structuring, and sometimes exhausting 3 power chord choruses but they write genuine lyrics and take the time to create lead and rhythm guitar parts that actually work! I just see a commitment really, and for that I guess I'm just willing to turn a blind eye to all these bands all coming up at the same time.
