I am proud to say that this unsigned band was an act that I discovered through SignMeTo over a year ago and was delighted to find out that they had created a full-length that was available for listening at Spotify. And what a brilliant record it is. I played some of the songs 60 or 70 times over, loving the band's interesting take on hard rock, 90s influenced grunge and metal. Even more incredible (well, at least to me) is the fact that this band come from southern France and have virtually no visibility in the USA outside of their SignMeTo profile page. I almost feel like a Pitchfork-reading hipster naming an album and artist of such obscurity as my number 1 full-length for the year!
