Album Review: Mother – Runaway Brother

Mother by Runaway Brother

#aotd is Mother by Runaway Brother. On this album Runaway Brother showcase an emo sound that is strangely catchy for the genre. The instrumentation sounds deceivingly simple but there are definitely hints of technicality shown over the duration of the album. The vocal performance on here is strong as well and fans of “The Front Bottoms” will resonate with it almost immediately though by the end of the album the exuberant delivery did get a bit grating. The production on here has to be commended though, these guys are sounding perfectly refined but maintain a bit of grit in the process. This is definitely worth listening to if you are a fan of emo with crunchy guitars and slick production.
Rating: 3.8/5
