Studying were a six-piece emo band from Annandale, Virginia that were around briefly from 2011 to 2012. Thank you to Anton for reminding me of these boiz, because this band was the shiiiiiit, and I haven't listened to them in a long time. They've got a heavy midwestern emo-influenced sound going on, which fans of Joie De Vivre and Merchant Ships will definitely dig. Their bright guitars, sad (and occasionally) screamed vocals, as well as sporadic use of brass instruments checks off the entire list of emo awesomeness. Songs About Leaving Home is incredible, as is their sole full-length Sophomoronic. Enjoy.
