"They can be loud, quiet and everything in between." That is the perfect description for the Doylestown, PA group, Balance and Composure.
Blending sounds like Sunny Day Real Estate, Neutral Milk Hotel and Nirvana, Balance and Composure have a way of settling into your brain and sticking around for a long time with their 90s-esque rock. A triple assault of overdriven guitars, powerful percussion and a steady flow of bass tones guide you from slow melodic musical valleys to fist smashing peaks that make you wonder how the hell a bunch of young guys like this can make such a dynamic sound.
Their latest album, Separation, has been receiving all sorts of praise both from fans and critics and today we have the pleasure of debuting their new video for "Quake."
The band gave us this quote on the song that is coupled with the Dan Centrone directed clip, "the song “Quake” is about emotionally putting yourself out into the public and how it can negatively affect you." Watch while the guys attend a funeral, perform in a flower-ridden room and walk through some nice Bucks County, PA forest all while dressed in some dapper suits.
You can also catch the group (which we highly recommend you do) on tour right now with Circa Survive and Touche Amore.
