Local Review: Sights – Sonder
Local Music Reviews
Sights = mewithoutYou + Steve Roggenbuck + Wearing Thin
Sonder is a great improvement on Sights’ still pretty great debut EP, Mammoth. From a pure songwriting perspective, I think these guys are catching up with Eons (R.I.P.) in the race for who can put out the best post-hardcore music in Salt Lake. I have no idea what they are singing, but the vocal delivery on this album fits perfectly with the intensity and grand scope of the music, especially on the mini-epic track, “II.”
Here, the interplay between vocals and instruments reminds me of our great modern post-hardcore idols, La Dispute—praise I am loath to give out lightly. Sights have not yet arrived, but they are well on their way, and I can’t wait to see what they come up with in the future. If they continue with their upward trajectory, their next release should absolutely fucking kill it. –Alex Gilvarry
