The Dear & Departed

Add Date: May 11

Artist: The Dear & Departed

Album: Chapters

Label: Equal Vision

Genre: Rock

Comments: Emotive alt-rock from the Dear & Departed on their 5 track EP Chapters. It's a nice blend of vocal melodies and purposefully layered instruments (specifically guitar), creating an upbeat but solid rock effort--noted influences are the Smiths and the Cure, and the group has toured with Alkaline Trio, Cursive, and AFI. Try tracks 1 and 3 (definitely a Cure vibe here).
