"It's like Explosions in the Sky and Manchester Orchestra fronted by Leighton Antelman" said the self-promotion post. Sounds too good to be true, right? In fact, the band definitely lives up to those similarities. The vocals seem like they could have come straight from a Lydia track, while the intertwining of ambiance and rock create a beautiful and relaxing sound. "Washes" even seems to have some Circa Survive influences, showing off more of the different styles that Magnificent Defeat has combined. The band has just released their second EP, on Bandcamp, and you can stream it right here.
