Obviously Meant To Be A Tearjerker
Just stumbled over Toronto trio Tearjerker on Soundcloud today while listening to the Royal Headache song 'High' for the hundredth time. 'Obviously Wrong' is the band's new single, off upcoming album Stay Wild next month. I originally thought I was listening to American Football when this started up - and it keeps that melancholy/euphoric mid-tempo atmosphere for its four-minute duration. It feels like a deliberate tempering of the senses, as if Tearjerker are as capable (and willing) to let the catharsis cascade from their instruments as anyone, and bring the noise only when emotions are wrought and shot through. It may have been by chance, but they certainly have my attention now.
