Unique vocals and a catchy blend of post-hardcore and alternative rock make for a surprisingly enjoyable listen on “Stars Align” by These City Limits. An Indianapolis rock quartet, the music has just the right amount of dissonance to serve as a hypnotic accompaniment for Randy Vanderbilt’s distinctly unique vocals…a quality that is definitely needed in the overcrowded and overplayed emo/hardcore genre that These City Limits dabble with. There are elements of Faith no More and Finch here, and it’s that darkness which makes this music inviting.
Check out These City Limits for yourself on Facebook or their official website. Also, don’t forget to listen to “Stars Align” below for a solid dose of rock mischief. The song is taken from their full-length release “The Modern Standard”.
