Alt-Rock Outfit, Lower Expectations, Release Driving, Emotional EP, ‘Talking to Myself’
Written by The Sound Kate on Fri, 3/18
Rochester natives Lower Expectations just released their newest set of songs under the umbrella ‘Talking to Myself’. These six songs were inspired by feeling lost and difficult personal experiences the band faced throughout the past year. This album is a follow up to their 2018 release ‘High Hopes’ and was recorded with RJ DeMarco at Skyway Studios and mastered by John Naclerio at Nada Studios.
Single (and band favorite) ‘Jobin’, portrays a blend of influences, ranging from a wide range of genres such as prog/emo/indie rock. The song starts with a 90’s rock-influenced, drivey intro and then breaks into a more melodic chorus and bridge with big emo/pop punk undertones. Keegan’s voice reminds me of Interpol’s Paul Banks, and really started to grow on me throughout the tune.
The band is playing with Bad Bloom, Blue Envy, and Ivy’s Panic room on 3/25 at the Bug Jar, so go support their new release!
