Album: S​.​C​.​A​.​B. – S​.​C​.​A​.​B.

“Originally a working title representing the first letters of the band members’ names (Sean, Cory, Alec, Brandon), S.C.A.B. is an acronym with a shifting meaning – its phonetic double acting as a metaphor for protection and healing for a group that’s always been there for one another.”

Also here is a quote from Sean Camargo (vocals/guitar):

“During the pandemic I did a lot of reflecting on people I have loved in the past. One day I really missed my ex and decided to check out her Spotify page. I rifled through all of her playlists and gauged the time we were dating next to those playlists. The song kind of explains our relationship and how I was always one foot in and one foot out. “I keep looking for something wrong when I listen to your favorite song, keep saying that something’s wrong but that’s not true” is a line inspired by my favorite Jesus & Mary Chain song.

More broadly, I’ve always been intrigued by the culture behind a mixtape. Even going so far as to make a movie like ‘Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist’ stamps its importance here in NYC. Playlists are like poems when you pay attention to every detail and the flow from beginning to end. A solid playlist should read like a timeless record; it has heart, ups and downs, maybe a tender joke and a strong period at the end.”

I listened to a couple of singles before this album was out, so naturally, I want to give the full release a proper listen. It offers a variety of indie rock-sounding songs with a strong guitar presence. It reminds me a little bit of Stevenson I have released on Z Tapes. I am unsure how to describe the vibe I am getting from these songs, but I greatly like the energy. The songs have a really nice kick and I am enjoying them very much. Definitely an album worth your time.
