Sinai Vessel

Sinai Vessel are an indie/emo band from North Carolina that got started in 2009 as a solo project, but soon expanded into the three-piece they are today. Despite being their many years together, their activity has been pretty sporadic. In fact, their second full-length just came out earlier this year on Tiny Engines. Without a doubt this is one of the highlight "emo" albums of the year (if you could call it that). The band takes a very mature approach to songwriting, with some hard-hitting, vulnerable lyrics, a heavy use of dynamics, and strong melodies. It's tough to draw comparisons to other bands, although I'd be willing to be Pedro The Lion is a big influence on these guys. I can't recommend Brokenlegged enough. Enjoy.
