Touche Amore - Parting The Sea Between Brightness And Me

All the E's: exciting, excellent, and emotive...

Rock Sound went just a little bit batshit over LA quintet Touché Amoré’s debut album when it hit the UK late last year. That excitement wasn’t based on kneejerk hyperbole, and this excellent follow-up simply underlines their brilliance. Still raw, impassioned and frenetic, on ‘Parting The Sea…’, vocalist Jeremy Bolm frequently sounds like he’s about to choke up internal organs as he eloquently bares his soul and personal self-doubt. It’s also a hugely (if not obviously) melodic record, though, with the emotiveness of songs such as ‘Uppers / Downers’ communicated with infectious but never gratuitously aggressive power. Time to get even batshittier – this is ace.
