It takes work unlocking the secrets of Emarosa’s debut LP ‘Relativity’. Having drafted in vocalist Jonny Craig, the Kentucky sextet has mostly abandoned the aggressive post-hardcore of their 2 EPs in favor of a more dreamy, atmospheric sound. When it works, it’s really good... But practically every song sounds the same on 1st listen, meaning that tracks start to blend into each other toward the end. What is missing are genuine hooks, which is a shame since the haunting vocals & technical guitar-work suggest limitless potential. Recommended Tracks: Just Another Marionette, Her Advice Cost Us A Life & The Past Should Stay Dead.
