While not exactly original in terms of indie music, this was surprisingly awesome. I’ll admit to not going into Lanterns with high expectations but was pleasantly surprised with how much I genuinely liked it, sitting there at desk listening to CD’s on my work computer, which isn’t exactly the ideal way to listen to CD’s. So that does give you a sense of how much I liked it. The Apocalypse Youth EP is just really good. Uplifting and just straight energetic, with no pretensions and solid melodies, I can definitely see this geting multiple subway ride and late night listens. I wouldn’t recommend it for someone like a Tragedy or Slayer fan, but just about everyone else should check them out.
