Review

I first heard the latest 5 track EP "The Earth Falls Asleep" with this band and immediately knew I had to hear their debut full length "You build a wall, I´ll build a ladder" as well.
I was impressed by their frontman Jeremy Spring´s strong vocals, it´s not too often you get to hear a singer this good but Jeremy can carry the songs himself.
4 songs off this album were re-recorded in acoustic versions on the new EP and I loved them so it´s almost like they are getting new life the other way around when I hear these full band versions on "You build a wall".
This Christian trio has found a perfect mix between alternative rock and emo, you can describe their sound as a cousin to bands like JamisonParker, Armor For Sleep and The Ataris (their latest album).
Great album!
