Touche Amore - Stage Four
Touché Amoré is a Los Angeles based punk band whose earnest and artful approach to song writing, along with relentless touring, fueled their rise to prominence in the hardcore community. In 2013 Touché Amoré crossed into new territory with their beloved release, Is Survived By. Triumphant in sound and cathartic in delivery, Stage Four is a powerfully creative leap for Touché Amoré. The first single is the catchy “Palm Dreams,” and it’s instantly clear from Bolm’s vocals that TOUCHÉ AMORÉ is breaking new ground: the career screamer is actually singing, in a quite capable sing-speak harmony. The final track, the lush, jangly “Skyscraper,” featuring haunting guest vocals from Julien Baker, ends the album with an atmospheric departure, both sonically and in spirit.
