And once you listen to And So I Watch You From Afar you're gonna want to sidle up close.

When I heard this band's name was And So I Watch You From Afar I totally thought what a bunch of pretentious prats. Like jeez, what kind of name is that? Some sort of mall emo or some such bullshit?

And then I started listening to their new album Heirs and was like, these kids can name themselves whatever they want if they're making music like this! There are prog elements at work here, but it's prog undergoing a massive sugar rush. Group vocals so upbeat it seems impossible poke through and ride atop the insanely weaving multiple guitar leads.

Look, you'll have to hear for yourself. Dig in.
