Short Fictions is an emo rock band based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania consisting of Sam Treber (guitar/vocals), Alex Martin (bass), Chloe June (guitar), Alex Barkley (Bass VI), Ryan Veith (drums), and Nick Bursick (trombone). The band recently released a new album, Every Moment of Every Day, on June 24.
“It’s rare to see a trio produce a soundscape as expansive as Youth League. With a heavy foundation of looped guitar riffs built around tapped-out melodies, Youth League boasts buoyant instrumentation with sparse crystalline vocals that feel reminiscent of the early aughts emo and math rock. Most of the band’s songs keep you locked in with their enchanting guitar work, which makes that occasional and heavily emotive vocal presence all the more powerful. Their vocal hooks dig in deep and further drive home their antic instrumentals, keeping the listener teetering on the edge of their seats and yearning for more. While Youth League benefits from an amalgamous sound, they are also capable of drifting off into post-rock, spacey realms thanks to their experimental nature. To say the sky is the limit for Youth League feels restrictive, as their sound has already traversed into the great unknown.” – Grant Golden, CLTure
The Most is a math rock band from Southington, Connecticut.
