Typhoon - A New Kind of House [Folk/Rock]

I will pay my debts, I will start anew...
Typhoon is an intriguing band to say the least, mainly because the alternative would keep us here all day. Kyle Morton, the lead vocalist of Typhoon, ties all of his writing back to the "bug that bit him" which refers to a tic that gave him an undiagnosed case of Lyme Disease that robbed him of his childhood and life in general.
On the verge of death after years of destruction, a light came from his father who donated one of his own kidneys to combat the failing organs inside Kyle's immune system. It was an experience that not many people would want to go through, though for Kyle Morton it opened his eyes up to life on an entirely different level. Typhoon's music explores many themes of life, death, loss, and disappointment while maintaining a theatrical sense of optimism. Typhoon is composed of 12 members, all who play a very big part in the composition of each song while providing small layers of complexity to them. A New Kind of House on the other hand is a far more "optimistic" album in both sound and song writing from the group's previously darker release Hunger/Thirst.

There is a lot I wish I could say about this EP, but sadly it's just one that I'm not capable of discussing about and giving it justice. Just take my word on it when I say this is one of the best EP's to be released in many, many years and is worth every bit of your attention along with the rest of Typhoon's discography.

You can stream, download, or buy A New Kind of House here. If you like this EP consider supporting the band Typhoon by throwing a few coins their way or by purchasing their newest album Artificial Light. Or better yet, try introducing the album to your friends because this is one release everyone should be hearing. Just remember, a little support and a little word of mouth goes a long way! <3
