Upstate by We Demand Parachutes

This track has a great stutter-step through the percussion and a profound guitar lead that encourages me to want to follow along. Dashboard Confessional fans will love the sing-along style and I might as well keep the compliments rolling by noticing that the instrumentation and song’s dynamics are fantastic, in line with notable bands like Brandtson, and Further Seems Forever… I really miss those bands.

The band cites this as a story of nostalgia and resolution… a relationship/breakup song that shares a bit of a positive message. This is just fantastic emo music. The lyrics are poetic, interesting, and the music is dynamic and driving.

I am super excited to follow this band on their journey.
