With a palpitatingly sweet prelude, it was hard to anticipate the aural attack which would greet me as Say Days Ago’s latest single “Disquiet” unfolded, because holy fuck. There was no preparing for the switch ups from the tentatively fragile guitar progressions to the raucous implosion of the instrumentals with the screamo vocals in the background as Mollee Allen’s sweetly concordant vocals sat atop of the mix.
Making Disquiet even sweeter is the fact it was created by the Husband and wife duo Thomas and Mollee Allen who are sure to give every fan of Post Hardcore couple envy. Yet, Say Days Ago is more than just your archetypal angsty outfit, Mollee’s vocals are ethereally captivating around the melodically raw instrumentals to Disquiet. I’d get the up and coming band on your radar, even though they may have only formed in 2018, I wouldn’t give it long until they break.

I can’t remember the last time I heard a Post-Hardcore track as instrumentally synergetic as Persephone, the debut single by Casen Pointe; a South Florida based Rock outfit.
The band is still fresh from their inception; however, their talents scream maturity. The 5-piece collective of artists are truly a powerhouse of talent with a vocalist with the ability to rival Ollie Sykes and Stump from Fall Out Boy at the same time. Seriously, the Screamo vocals leave you weak at the knee’s, so I’m sure it’s pretty dangerous to watch Casen Pointe live.
The Hard Rock band do more than just exude futile angst, the instrumental arrangements in the breakdowns are as haunting as they come, the way the track draws to a raucous close is palpitation-inducingly pleasing. Between the two guitarists, they create some of the most monstrous riffs that I’ve ever heard.
After you check out their debut track Persephone I’m sure you will join me in the frustrating anticipation for the bands debut album.

“Train of Thought,” is a musical master piece, the opening is powerful, hard hitting, and vocally charged. The lead vocalist spews searing but harmonically charged, raw emotion; the kind of emotion that just reaches through the speakers and grabs you with intensity. Her lead vocals coupled with the background vocals catapult this piece to an entirely different height. She has a strong voice and intense voice, there’s not one wavering moment in her performance each line spills with passion and emotional climax.
The instrumentation is perfect, hard hitting drum cadence’s that lead to the climatic interlude in the track where an awesome guitar solo increases the spirit of the song. There are some nostalgic moments in the song, and a few surprises during the guitar solo that make this song worth a listen or two or ten. Powerful track from beginning to end!
