Who It Is: Gloria Adios – The Circle Opens; Self-Released (2014)

What It Sounds Like: A more accessible, tempered, and mature incarnation of Envy On The Coast, made for the wide open air of plains country.

Review:

The Circle Opens doesn’t waste any time catching you off guard. “Hapscomb’s Texaco” starts out setting expectations with a fairly standard post-hardcore instrumental, which it promptly shatters with unexpected electronic manipulation. The intro leads right into “Captain Trips and the Trashcan Man”, which stays fresh and interesting throughout its 5 minutes of shifting, rolling rhythms and shrill riffs. It has a wide-open feel to it, like a less violent Sky Eats Airplane. The gang choruses slip into indie grooves complete with vaulting harmonies and melodic guitar work, playing on the same musical ideas in different settings in a very pleasing way. The dynamics are the real kicker – they’re always tempering the quiet parts with active drum fills, keeping the shredding balanced with a more straightforward rhythm section.
