Pianos Become the Teeth Old Pride

Pianos Become the Teeth Old Pride
Pianos Become The Teeth prove they can continue in impressive fashion from their debut EP, Saltwater. Old Pride comes through more focused from start to finish than that release, which is saying a lot, placing them head and shoulders above the latest wave of screamo hopefuls. The band excel at creating beautiful, sweeping musical landscapes, which lead singer Kyle Durfey unleashes his pulse-raising scream over. Opening song "Filial" jumpstarts the eight-song, 36-minute disc. With a quiet half-minute of strumming, Durfey's effusive voice overtakes the speakers with urgency before he lets a driving riff lead to the end. "Young Fire" (the instrumental track) and "Pensive," with Durfey proclaiming, "I'm ready to let my hair down, I'm ready to move to the woods," highlight this roaring album that gets better the more it's played.
