TITLE FIGHT: Kingston: 7”

Shades of ‘90s emotional punk and a bit of hardcore (Lifetime, early ‘90s Dischord) seep through into the three songs found on this. The guitarists are more than capable, the lyrics are honest, and it’s all done by a bunch of juniors in high school. I never would’ve guessed it if the press sheet hadn’t said so, as the songwriting is top shelf compared to that of most bands this age. It’s nice to hear a band of kids my age doing something other than ripping off Underoath.
