Sounds Like Words

"Hey were Sounds Like Words please check out our page and our single "A Toast" and become a fan and spread the word!!! thankyou, John Aaron Monday "

Purevolume Page
Genre: Electronica/Indie/Experimental

I like this. I really like this. They do have that electronica sound that makes me think of M83. Probably a better comparison for Sounds Like Words would be The Bravery or The Faint. They do have a more pop sound than the two. The last song on their page, "Saturday Night," sounds like it's been influenced by Shiny Toy Guns (from the album "Poison"). At least, that's the vibe I've got. It's at times a more dance sort of thing. But they also have this really intense feel to their tracks. It's angry. But in a good way.

The lead singer has more of a yelling think going on, as opposed to singing (think Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols but toned down a bit). This is most prevalent in the verses and in the song "Rock Your Body."

My only problem is that the singing is almost overpowered by the rest of the band. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I am someone who likes to closely listen to the lyrics. It's not the fault of the band itself, though. More likely just the mixing.

Am I becoming a fan? Hell yes.
