Anberlin w/ Paper Route
Angsty lyrics and booming bass guitar powered Anberlin’s 2008 hit "Feel Good Drag." However, their latest single "Unstable" possesses staying power with its matured vocals and arresting percussion (a synchronized combat boot march), proving Anberlin has grown wiser with the years. The Florida quartet’s newest album Vital adds an electronic element, as hordes of rock bands have done to great success. Tracks like "Someone Anyone" benefit from this addition; the song begins with a high-energy techno sample, which is soon overpowered by the intense drums and guitars that remain the band’s trademark.
