frankiedrain91 The pure fury displayed towards feelings of sadness excites me so much, negativity becoming beauty through the medium of song.
I find this record empowering as fuck! Favorite track: Why It Scares Me.

Rheeann Linsley The second track of this album gets me. Don't get me wrong; I love the first as well, but "Why It Scares Me" feels like it was transcribed from the braille encrypted on my forearm. I listen to it over and over again. Favorite track: Why It Scares Me.

so, why it scares me? it's full of feelings that i can't properly describe myself, kicks my brain when i think about it all so much, it's screaming when i can't say a word, staring to the dark ceiling in the middle of the night. but as they say, there's still time to figure it out. [10/2013] Favorite track: Why It Scares Me.

How I Feel 02:04


"Searching for a Pulse/The Worth of the World" is the musical and emotional convergence of two groups of close friends who, while from entirely different locations and backgrounds, share a common passion for creating honest art that seeks to explore the deeper aspects of every day existence. In particular, the songs on either side of this record discuss thematically the sometimes crippling mediocrity of day-to-day life, paying special attention to the effect environment has on self while attempting to reconcile feelings of discontent in the face of self-doubt. Musically, the 7" represents a new approach for both bands, who, in an attempt to add aesthetic continuity to the lyrical concept, focused on finding musical middle ground with the other--a process that forced both bands into new creative territories and added a consistency uncharacteristic of most splits. The end result is a 4-song collaborative examination of life, two musical snapshots from two very different cities that each show the same lingering uncertainty present everywhere, and a challenge to the creative process. This release was recorded during similar time periods both in Los Angeles and in New York and features collaborative digital and hand-drawn artwork from La Dispute's Adam Vass and Touche Amore's Nick Steinhardt, as well as vocal collaborations between each band's vocalists.
