Lavinia

Lavinia, a new band hailing from Boston, MA, introduces their debut EP “There Is Light Between Us”. The band consists of current & former members of indie rock heavyweights such as Caspian, Eksi Ekso, The Burning Paris, On Fire, and the Fatal Flaw, but should never be confused as some sort of “side project”. Bleak, dark, and unforgiving - Lavinia trudge through terrain that is much different than any of the members other projects.

Lavinia, a new band hailing from Boston, MA, introduces their debut EP “There Is Light Between Us”. The band consists of current & former members of indie rock heavyweights such as Caspian, Eksi Ekso, The Burning Paris, On Fire, and the Fatal Flaw, but should never be confused as some sort of “side project”. Bleak, dark, and unforgiving - Lavinia trudge through terrain that is much different than any of the members other projects. And while there is an underlying hope in each song - the album dwells in an unshakable depression. A feeling of isolation and loneliness further exposed by the heart-on-the-sleeve vocals of guitarist/vocalist Nate Shumaker (ex-Eksi Ekso, On Fire, The Burning Paris, Everdown), that brings to mind a combination of Red House Painter’s Mark Kozelek and The Cure’s Robert Smith. Pair that up with the commanding bass wielding of Philip Jaimeson (main axe man of Caspian), the towering drum fills of Alex Mihm (Eksi Ekso), and the slide guitar & banjo atmospherics of Josh Megyesy (ex-On Fire, The Burning Paris, The Fatal Flaw), and you’ve got the makings of a band who’s sound shares more in common with roman mythology, than it does their own contemporaries and peers. « hide
