View From The Attic Announce State Lines, State Faults and Restorations UK Releases

View From The Attic Records have announced they will be releasing new material from State Lines, State Faults and Restorations in the UK.

State Lines' self-titled 7”, State Faults' 'Desolate Peaks' and Restorations' 'A/B' 7” can be purchased here.

Album Review: State Faults - Desolate Peaks

State Faults hail from sunny Santa Rosa, California and this, ‘Desolate Peaks,’ is their debut album. They’re a post-hardcore bands of sorts with a sound reminiscent of 90s emo. They have hints of La Dispute about them definitely, and also Thursday. They are an intriguing prospect and this is definitely a Marmite album. 

Opening track ‘Sleepwalker’ has a serenity to it that is quickly dispelled as soon as the vocals kick in. The music and vocals play against each other for supremacy throughout the album and are a shocking juxtaposition. Some may find it grating to listen to, however I think it is a refreshing sound and one that works well for State Faults. 

Single ‘Arrowhead’ continues this theme as the honey-drenched guitars slide along smoothly in contrast to the piercing, desperate vocals. Whilst the backing music has something of a Friendly Fires feel to it, the vocals are more reminiscent of At The Drive In. It truly is a bizarre thing to listen to, and it takes a while to adjust. However I think the juxtaposition of sound works really well and creates a memorable listening experience.
