Saintly Rows

Saintly Rows were a three-piece screamo/emo/post-rock band from Albuquerque, New Mexico that formed in 2012 and unfortunately broke up about a month ago. They're one of the many bands I've been meaning to do for a long time, but for some reason or another just never got around to it. They've continued to blow me away with each release they've put out in the past few years, so I cannot recommend you check them out enough. They combine the classic chaotic screamo of bands like Off Minor and Daïtro with more modern post-rock/emo hybrids such as Old Gray and Pianos Become The Teeth, and then throw in some Brand New for good melodic measure. Their lyrics are astounding, the vocals are passionate, and the instrumental side of things is incredibly tight as they weave through quiet/loud dynamics seamlessly. They share members with another great band called Drifter. Enjoy.
