Somos


Somos are a four-piece emo/punk band from Boston, Massachusetts that formed in 2012. Their debut full-length, Temple Of Plenty, came out in 2014, and has immediately garnered a lot of attention. In the grand scheme of modern emo revival, there are always a few standouts that are above the average twinklefests that drop so constantly. Somos are one of these standouts, immediately making a splash in a scene where bands like You Blew It! and The Hotelier are already king. Their sound brings in elements of post-hardcore, post-rock, and indie to create a unique blend to their contemporary emo sound. Their songs are catchy and melodic, with some great lyrics to back them up. Their guitar work is varied, while the entire bands creates a driving force that give these songs such an energy. Thanks to Jacob Shumaker for the help with this post, and enjoy.
