I Am Growing, Honestly
Release Date: August 4, 2017
Hailing from the “lower regions” of Texas, Sine Cura are making their debut with this independently produced EP. I’m seriously starting to believe that there is something in the water in Texas because pretty much every band that comes from there, no matter the style of music, are excellent. It’s sort of the Canada of the United States. I Am Growing, Honestly is a fascinating EP full of Emo-tinged Alt-Rock with a Pop goodness that pretty much makes it impossible to not enjoy.
The EP is mostly full of the energetic, up-tempo Rock of “Drive,” “Pressing Flowers,” and “Growing Pains.” They come complete with catchy choruses, bouncy rhythms, and jangly melodies that make you want to bob your head and scream along. The more exploratory “Headache Remedy” and “La Luna” helps the EP to shine the spotlight in a different direction. They have a deeply intimate feel that really speaks to me and firmly reminds me that Emo in the right hands can still be great. I absolutely love these two songs.
If you are a fan of bands like Smoking Popes, Newfound Glory, Further Seems Forever, or The Maine then you should definitely check out what Sine Cura has to offer. I Am Growing, Honestly is an EP that is well worth your time and I am looking forward to hearing what this band has to offer in the future.
