Band of the Day: Fiddlehead / ‘Lay Low’ Is Some Infectious Throwback Emocore


Fiddlehead’s ‘Lay Low’, off their upcoming album Springtime and Blind, is a rousing, infectious post-hardcore tune. The Boston band, which is clearly well-versed in its local Massachusetts hardcore history, seems to take more cues from old school DC emocore than it does from emo pop or Midwest emo. The song’s repetitive chorus is extremely catchy. The group’s gruff masculine vocals are a nice change of pace for a genre that seems to have a soft spot for annoyingly soprano, operatic singers. The guitars are biting and the group’s rhythm section is confident and pounding. Their new album Springtime and Blind comes out on Run For Cover Records on April 13. Go check them out!
