Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) - 2007 Year Of the Rabbit 7´´

Band : Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate)
Album : Year Of the Rabbit 7´´
Release Year : 2007
Genre : Emo / Indie

Tracklist :
1. Year Of the Rabbit
2. Idk, My Bff Jill

Year of the Rabbit may well only be two songs, but if we lay the facts out on the table then you realise that this is more than just two songs. It's two fucking awesome songs which is way better. Empire! Empire! (I Was A Lonely Estate) may have a stupid name (in fact in a recent survey 9 out of 10 people said they do), but at the end of the day it's the music that counts. The band play a strain of indie/emo we've all heard before through artists like the Mike Kinsella's American Football, but to give credit where it's due they do it well, really well. In fact I'd say they're the crown fucking jewels of the genre if only to get you to check them out. Instrumentally, the band has a very clean sound; particularly the guitar which is subtly technical in style, whilst vocally it could almost be Kinsella crooning along the way the smooth vocals become almost another instrument as they weave and intermingle with the music. Basically you need this.
