Songbird Draws All Closer
This band plays math/progressive hard rock. It's music sounds similar to Tool and Incubus. This band has just released a 6-song EP entitled The Songbird Draws All Closer, featuring Call it Arson drummer Jesse McVaney. The Harold Loeb-esq recording presents nocturnal, tonal mantras that relapse into aggressive out-cries, which find themselves cycling back into a spinning wheel of timelessness. The slight of eclecticism and randomness with the lash of asymmetry and cubism are prominently hinted in the presented works. This three-person band is based from Killingworth, CT. Lyle Townsend, Derek Van Wormer, and Aaron Robertson are all enrolled in Berklee College of Music in Boston. Townsend is a locally known classical pianist and freelance location recording engineer who has worked for several local bands recording dozens of shows in the past year. His lyrics revolve around his dreamlife and it's correlation to his reality; his playing implies many traditional approaches in conjunction with modern ideas to verge a sound of both antagonism and passiveness, simple and compound. In the past, the band has performed with local bands including DoubleThink, Planeside, Missing Joe, and Lorenji Shift at venues including the Madison Arts Barn, the Equator, the Empress Ballroom, the Cheshire Teen Center, and the Chester Meeting House. After a lengthy sabbatical from the stage, they are returning strong by going on a tour to play several venues in Boston, Providence, Hartford, New York, Philadelphia, and the space in between.The Silent Treatment Tour, coined by a local newspaper editorialist who found himself uncomforted by the band's unwillingness to speak between songs, will last throughout the summer months.
