souv cover1 Check Out: Souvenirs   Sinker (CoS Premiere)

Carpinteria, California emo outfit Souvenirs generated a healthy hometown groundswell with the September 2011 release of their debut EP, Sadder Days. The foursome quickly caught the attention of venerable punk/emo label 6131 Records, who will release their follow-up EP, Tired of Defending You, on June 5th.

The five-track effort’s latest single is “Sinker”, a cut very much in the tradition of Braid and Mineral. The instrumentation is a slightly polished version of four dudes honing their craft in garages, with an emphasis on a central, rambling bassline and a loud-quiet-loud dynamic. Still, like their predecessors, the real draw’s the angst, personified by the undertones of young heartache in every whisper and slight wail. Stream it below.
