Meet your new favorite emo throwback: Orlando's You Blew It!
While we're probably never going to agree on whether or not the "emo revival" took place in the past year or two, you could do a lot worse than pointing to a band like Orlando's You Blew It! as exhibit A in the court case of Music Nerd Opinion.
The band's second full-length, Keep Doing What You're Doing (out in January on Topshelf Records), almost sounds like a self-fulfilling prophesy in terms of charging ahead with a specific musical aesthetic.
Compared to last year's Grow Up, Dude, the band's latest work exhibits growth as well as a broader palate of musical colors, but at its heart it's what they've been doing all along: intricately interlocking guitar lines that fall in and out of the mix, then coalesce into scintillating crunch on songs like "Awards of the Year Award."
Listen to You Blew It!'s "Award of the Year Award" after the jump.
