The Anthemeers EP is acoustic, indie soft-rock. The first song “Becoming Something” brags, “with peace, I am entwined,” which is annoying. It kind of reminds me of when I was little and I went to Church and everyone had their hands in the air, praising the lord. But it gets better from the first track so I wasn’t so put off by this seeming “morally just rock.” The second song, “Stray Dog” sounds a bit more like The Big Scary in their acoustic days, but wait! They actually are a christian band. They say something about “the lord.” The vocals are pretty decent and the acoustics really are beautiful. I just kind of wish they’d stop singing though. Check it out. I recommend listening to this album with your friends, swaying with your hands in the air.
