Armed with a dark humour and a dynamic want to make the most of the day.
Label: Big Scary Monsters
Released: 17th March 2017
Sorority Noise are not sure. Throughout ‘You’re Not As ___ As You Think’, the band ask questions of themselves, of friends and of God. Rife with uncertainty and fuelled by heartbreaking loss and sudden abandon, the record sees the band stumble but never fall.
Despite all that internal struggle and eternal wrestle, Sorority Noise remain firm. Greater than their real life inspirations, this isn’t a record that fetishizes death. It celebrates continuing on. Sure, it’s emotional, powerful and, at times, uncomfortable, but armed with a dark humour and a dynamic want to make the most of the day, it’s a record that embraces the light. “I’m not trying to say it’s easy,” offers ‘A Portrait Of’, “but I’m trying to say it’s fine”.
