Exclusive: Stream Henrietta's "Constantinople" From Their...

Posted by - 08:30 AM on 07/24/14
Living in Gainesville for four years taught me lots of things, and one of them was that there existed in Central and Northern Florida a hotbed of talented punk and emo bands. I watched groups like Gainesville's Dikembe and Orlando's You Blew It! play house shows before they signed to Tiny Engines and Topshelf Records, respectively, and I discovered Orlando's Henrietta when they put out a split with Tallahassee's Echo Base (who they will hit the road with this summer - dates in the replies) and South Florida's Gillian Carter. Henrietta, which will release its debut LP, The Trick Is Not Minding, on August 28 via Animal Style, had a few older EPs which I then checked out at the time - and to my delight, they were another brilliantly talented Florida band that (again, at the time) wasn't getting enough attention. Now they're starting to get out there a bit more, and I'm happy to bring you an exclusive stream of their new song "Constantinople." Check it out in the replies, and see how the band manages to meld weary, desperate-sounding vocals with its own brand of punk / post-hardcore / whatever you want to call it. It's a finely tuned, finely crafted song that reflects the LP on a larger scale; rather than bludgeoning you with hook after hook or heavy-for-the-sake-of-being-heavy musicianship, Henrietta takes the time to let a song breathe and share its purpose. The Trick Is Not Minding is available for pre-order now.

Damn, it took four years to figure out that there is an amazing scene there? Where were you for Underoath, Copeland, Less Than Jake, Hot Water Music, Yellowcard, etc?

And, oh yeah, go Gators!
