Today, Baltimore/D.C. post-hardcore band Pianos Become The Teeth share “Buckley,” the final single and music video from new album ‘Drift’ out on August 26th. The track opens with a heavily manipulated guitar loop and pulsating drum pattern that are quickly shattered by a roaring bassline. As Kyle Durfey’s resonant vocals seem to float away due to an echoplex, the song blooms into a noisy indie rock anthem driven by crashing drums, layers of echoes and a multitude of instrumental loops. Starting and ending at very different places, it mimics the duality of the band who embrace both soft and hard elements in their music.
Even with a sound that is continually transforming, Pianos Become The Teeth still hold onto the inherent aggression of their screamo/hardcore years. Frontman Kyle Durfey explains, “I refer to a song like ‘Buckley’ as ‘heavy blue’, because there are heavy parts in there, but they are really deliberate.”
