Remo Drive


Remo Drive are a three-piece emo/indie/punk band from Bloomington, Minnesota that formed in 2013. Their debut LP, Greatest Hits, came out last month, and this shiz is blowin' up. For good reason, of course. This thing is 10 tracks of high-energy, catchy as hell melodies, and explosive guitar riffage, with some serious Get Up Kids and Weezer influence to boot. In the emo corner of indie rock, this album will probably make the most waves since Home, Like Noplace Is There, but with a much more sunny disposition (on the surface, at least). Lyrically, they're still quite down in the dumps, but with the energy they put off, it's hard not to smile the whole way through this thing. This is a downward spiral sing-along, and definitely emo's finest hour thus far this year. I know I say it a lot, but this shit is highly, highly recommended. Enjoy.

  8. YO anyone reading this: Comment more bands similar to Remo Drive. I like their older shit more but the new album is 10/10 no complaints. I just like the post-hardcore vibe they used to have. Seems like they went for more of a Punk sound on this new album.
