Over the past few years, and through a few different iterations, Seattle-based math-rock emo-punks Scarves has established themselves as, “One of the city’s top notch rising acts,” according to KEXP.
In that same paragraph, the words “jarring” and “abrasive” also appear so that starts to paint a picture of the dichotomy that has been at play for the band and its frontperson/founder Niko Stathakopoulos.
Joined by Cael Watts (drums) and Nessa Grassing (guitars), Scarves are now announcing a new LP, Dinner Dates for the End of Days.
Stathakopoulos, Grasing, and Watts wrote and rehearsed Dinner Dates for the End of Days under a cloud of smoke and ash from British Columbia forest fires. If “apocalyptic emo math rock” doesn’t get you excited in 2018, nothing will. Each song is a portrait of an end times that’s positively inspiring and undeniably heart-warming. Even as we lurch toward something unpleasant, it’s hard to be too bummed out with Niko’s vocals and Watts’ driving drums.
The album was recorded at Destination Universe in Portland: a studio designed to blend in to a neighborhood realtors might call “character-filled.” Produced by Hutch Harris of Thermals sainthood, the album was recorded downright punkishly. No click. Mostly single takes. It’s a testament to the tightness of the band that the finished product sounds so lush.
Let Dinner Dates for the End of Days be the last album you listen to before we all slip off into oblivion.
