Emo // Pop Punk // Alt Rock // Austin, Texas
With the release of the “Show the World, You Are Kind” EP, Almost Famous Friends brings a new feel to a clashing of genres. Lush with addicting progressions, an edgy but soulful style approach, and persistent pop undertones, the record boasts the aesthetic of Acoustic Punk anthems. Although the songs are diverse from one another, there is a glue that holds them all together much like a concept album would. Most importantly, the album never loses sight of the emotional platform great songs are built from.
The first single, “Light of Day”, is an instant classic. Complete with a combination of acoustic and electric instrumentation, loads of vocal hooks and harmonies, and an honest, straight forward lyrical approach, the song seems to breathe and build as it plays on.
“’Light of Day’, the second track off the EP, is a sappy, hopeful song about being interested in someone that you think you don’t have any of being with. The name mostly stems from the lyric, ‘Girl, I hope that it’s ok, spill these words I wanna say on a notebook page that will never see the light of day’. It is a prime example of the emotional lyrics and catchy melodies that Almost Famous Friends bring into every song” explains vocalist Tristan Wilson of the bands single.
