This Simmer Album Is The Perfect Remedy For Small Town Frustration

And it's also flat-out great.

Simmer are great. They're from a small town in Cheshire, and their debut album 'Paper Prisms' is a frustrated, scruffy triumph of modern emo.

And you can listen to the whole thing right here.

"Within 'Paper Prisms', we hoped to illustrate our underlying frustration of living in a small town surrounded by parochial people," say the band.

"As a band collectively, we'd never actually sat down and discussed how we wanted to go forward in regards to our sound. Previously, we'd play what initially came into practice. However, this time we carefully attempted to formulate our own niche, which we could all - as a band - mutually be proud of."

Into it? The album is out on February 29 via Dog Knights Productions and pre-orders are available here.

The band also hit the road with Leatherneck and Water Canvas later this month.
