Post-Hardcore The Way Mum Used To Make

Posted on February 12, 2008

Don’t take our word for how awesome the new Hopesfall album ‘A Types’ is… read the below review from Kerrang! instead. HOPESFALL A-TYPES KKKK POST-HARDCORE THE WAY MUM USED TO MAKE. LISTENING TO Hopesfall is like listening to the nascent post-hardcore bands of the mid-’90s. A-Types’, the band’s second full length offering, eschews the horrible corporate unit-shifting, radio-friendly sound of many of today’s so-called ’emo’ bands and harks back to the earthier, ethereal sounds of Texas Is The Reason, Chamberlain or Fireside. If you can remember those bands first time around you’ll get a rush of sentimentality and fond memories. If you can’t then this will serve as a lesson on how things should be done. ‘A-Types’ is a consistently beautiful record. Powerful and emotive without ever sounding trite or wet, it conveys mood and atmosphere where others just shout about being rubbish with girls. Put it on your Christmas list now. DOWNLOAD: ‘The Ones’. FOR FANS OF: Jimmy Eat World, Far.
