MOVIES WITH HEROES
NOTHING HERE IS PERFECT
Movies with Heroes is a PA-based quintet who has risen through the ranks of independent musicianship, finally ascending to the national ranks after a languishing five-year indie run. With a sound that is reminiscent of bands such as Thursday, The Cure, and the innumerable stream of emo bands that you’ve probably at this point grown weary of, this outfit manages to soar beyond the laymen-given emo moniker, injecting staggering amounts of soul into songs like “Nothing”, making these songs heartfelt journeys you’re glad to be a part of rather than predictably whiny soliloquies. Emblazoned with intriguing compositions, an irresistible vocal delivery that lures you in like a stranger with candy, and a musical cohesion that is downright frightening, songs like the contagiously melodic “Warmer” and the shimmering, synth-driven opener “Wake Up”, this is one that fans of everything from Cursive to Coheed and Cambria should wholeheartedly agree on.
