Parade of Lights
The Take Off and Landing of Everything
Boston natives return with their sophomore effort “Drawn to Revolving Doors” - the follow up to their debut record “Direction of Motion” which gained them critical acclaim and the title of “One of the best Unsigned Bands in the Country”. While the new record might follow the same suit as their debut, the band has matured incredibly over the past few years. Perhaps the bands lyrical maturation is most notable on the track “Mouth Full of Sand”, beautifully encapsulating emotional lyrics, like “I thought you were an ocean, but I’m leaving with a mouth full of sand.” What really sets Averi apart from the rest on this track, and on the entire CD, is the incredibly unique sounding band. Melodic guitar hooks, mixed with piano, drums, and often saxophone give this group a distinctive refreshing sound. While Averi spent majority of their last record finding out what works for them, the band dives in head first with this new release, holding nothing back. From the laid back grooves of “The Brighter Side”, to the hook filled “Everything With You”, Averi steps it up to a whole new level this time around. With their sound and lyrics matured, Averi is primed for the spotlight; it’s only a matter of time before this extremely talented band is picked up by a major label.
