Review: Emery – While Broken Hearts Prevail [2008]

amazon-emeryTransplanted South Carolina emo rockers Emery provides a stopgap release in the form of the seven-track WHILE BROKEN HEARTS PREVAIL. Heartwrenching histrionics and hard rock riffs collide at the Warped Tour on cuts like the showtune-esque “Thoughtlife” and the keyboard punk rock sunshine of “Always Depends”. This quintet (who now call Seattle home) combines airy melodies (“Do The Things (You Want)”) and punchy punk rock with a convincing array of pop sensibilities (“Edge of the World,” “Always Depends”), striking a startling middle ground between Thursday and Motion City Soundtrack. www.toothandnail.com -Mike SOS
