Explosions In The Sky


Explosions In The Sky probably don't need much of an introduction, as they are easily one of the biggest bands I've ever posted on here. As a quick overview, they are a four-piece post-rock band from Austin, Texas that began in 1999. They've become one of the most influential and emulated bands of their kind. The layered, melodic guitars soaked in reverb and delay have cropped up in a multitude of other genres and popularized a lot of soundtracks (some of which EITS contributed to directly). They're as epic and anthemic as their namesake suggests, making every moment monumentous. Thus, I figured they were the best closer for this year, which we can all at least pretend ended on a high note. Enjoy.
