Elder - Reflect Cover

These Philadelphians are the real deal...

It’s hard to know what constitutes as screamo these days, but listening to Elder’s latest record, it’s easy to hear that these Philadelphians are the real deal. From the desperate, heart-in-throat vocals of Armando Morales to the taut, melodic guitar work of co-vocalist Craig Woods, the trio deliver a sound that harkens back to the genre’s 90s heyday, albeit infused with tasteful post-rock influences and some fresh ideas of their own. It all comes together beautifully on final number ‘Remember These Days’, which builds to a soaring climax worthy of Envy, leaving the listener breathless, reeling and hungry for more.
