One of the beautiful things about being a fan of post-hardcore is that it's a genre with a lot of room to explore a host of sounds. The Devil & God Are Raging Inside Me by post-hardcore/pop punk icons Brand New fuses acoustic songwriting with walls of reverbed out guitar noise and Jesse Lacey's wail to create a sound that is atmospheric and distinct. Nirvana are "grunge" but there are tracks on Nevermind that have more in common with Dinosaur Jr. and Husker Du than grunge's traditional welding of pop hooks with punk guitar riffs (and reverb...so much reverb). And on their track "Pennies, New York post hardcore indie rockers Winds & Walls let their heavier roots take a back seat to an almost folksy, poppier sound while still hinting at the edges and intensity just around the corner. We're stoked to have the exclusive premiere of "Pennies." The track effortlessly marries a folk-pop melody that would be right at home on a First Aid Kit record with churning guitars and a propulsive rhythm. It's a "lighters in the air as you enter the home stretch of a great concert" sort of tune, and, honestly, you could always use a song like that in your day.
