As a music blogger I'm expected to maintain my hipster cred from time to time, by casually dropping hints about music you've never heard of. One of my favorite new albums you've never heard of comes from Highly Suspect, a Post-Emo band I liked before they were cool.
As someone who hated Emo, I was immediately intrigued by late-2016's The Boy Who Died Wolf. On the album you'll find some Emo trappings, like narcissism and questionable neck tattoos, but this is combined with a very mature and modern take on Blues. All of these factors, and even more questionable face tattoos, can be experienced in this video for Serotonia which also includes some stunningly deep lyrics.
