Lots of acts are up and coming, many of which you don’t get to hear because it’s usually independent or there’s no major corporation backing them. That’s where you find a lot of good music, for times such as these. One such independent band is The Relevant. Mixing elements of several types of music, but maintaining the ethos of an emotional rock, the band constructs an interesting approach to their sound. Still somewhat new, they have come across this editor’s desk with a passionate display of tracks that you may want to listen to, especially if you’re a fan of independent music.
Comparisons are easily drawn to a lot of previous work, including touches of Thursday, Student Rick, and even Taking Back Sunday, although a bit more mellow at times. They aren’t those acts, but they have similar wave lengths through some tracks. Stand out tracks you can listen to include, “Courting Chaos”, “Slideshow Charade” and “Hello, In Real Time”. Passion projects, and independent music will always become something more, as I would know with my nostalgic views on my former record label.
Anyways, check out The Relevant here on Facebook, and Reverbnation here. They have more music coming along, so if you’re looking for something new, give them a listen.
