Band Spotlight & Video Premiere: For The Life Of Me

Posted by - 12:29 AM on 01/30/13
Today we're pleased to be bringing you a video premiere and band spotlight all rolled into one big, angsty bundle from Portland's For The Life Of Me. The band have a new EP Closure out soon and you can scroll down to see the band's lyric video for lead single "Eleven." If a heady mix of Balance & Composure and Make Do And Mend sounds like your kind of thing, you'll probably dig it. Let us know what you think in the replies.

sounds good, but I'd have to hear more songs to hear what's distinctive about them..

Really good stuff. The 3 out of 4 songs from the ep they have up on band camp are all incredible!

This sound is getting too saturated. Once in a while I hear something new that is similar but stands out a little (ie Arrows in her, Departures, Turnover), but this is too much like Make Do and Mend, which I find really generic.

None the less, I wish these guys luck.

Just looked up the artists you mentioned in your post. I'm liking what I'm hearing out of Departures.

This is solid. Guitar tone could use some work, and the band needs to refine themselves a tad, but there's definitely some value here.
