Guest House - I'll Get Over It I Guess [Emo]

For better or for worse the emo revival scene is clearly one that is going to stay around for a while. With bands like Prawn, The World Is A Beautiful Place, and Empire! Empire! leading the scene in full force it's probably going to be something that will be sticking around for a long time. Now Guest House on the other hand are pretty unique for the scene in their own right. While many bands in the scene try to stick with the more depressive tones that the previous scene had, Guest House goes out of the way with surprisingly upbeat and groovy music with almost happy lyrics.
A surprisingly fun EP to listen to, Guest House flawlessly blends catchy song writing with more melancholy, reminiscent lyrics in the short 11 minute run time of the EP. Tracks like Arbor Day and Letting Go incorporate the exciting blends of "woahs" with screams and warm guitar riffing that makes the tracks contagious. While final track Brave throws in a smooth post-rock-esque melody with pretty powerful lyrics. Overall it's an EP that shows the promises of a band that can go on to make some incredibly unforgettable music, and here's to hoping that's where Guest House goes.
You can stream, buy, or download I'll Get Over It I Guess here. If you enjoyed this EP consider dropping some money in the band's way to support any and all upcoming projects, or even share the band with your friends. A little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
