Always shifting and rarely content to follow verse-chorus-verse norms, Everyone Everywhere flexes some serious instrumental muscle with its patented guitar acrobatics, chunky chords steeped in distortion and fuzz, propulsive rhythms and layers upon layers of richly textured harmonics. Lead vocalist Brendan McHugh’s delivery is reserved yet confident, and his intriguing and obtuse lyrical style is a recipe for certain addiction.
This is music that is kinetic, warm and bright and transmits in both nostalgic and progressive tones all at once. While the ten songs on their debut self-titled LP ebb and swell with bittersweet melodies and simultaneously driving and intricate soundscapes, it’s almost all peaks and no valleys. Maybe as close to perfecting the classic 90’s emo / indie rock / power pop style as you’re going to hear all year.
