State Song

State Song

Southgate House
Saturday – Sep 26 – 9:00

Cincinnati, OH

Scott Torres: Guitar, Vocals, Keys Matt Hemingway: Bass George Jesse: Drums

Torres’ bipolar guitars pluck and lilt gently along versus until working themselves into a hell-bent and distorted frenzy for grand choruses. Jesse’s drums provide a solid thud and Hemingway’s bass lines sustain a hummable melody. And there’s certainly an accomplished Pop undercurrent to allay the noisier elements. Listening to State Song, though, is no emotionally measured experience. It’s more like riding a boat through calm waters and suddenly being swept up in a tsunami – or being gently smothered by a pillow.
