Artist of the Day - The World is a Beautiful Place and I Am No Longer Afraid to Die
The band is very much an emo group, rooted deeply into the mid-'90s scene. Looping guitars and soft but high pitched vocals are the order of the day. It feels a bit like American Football, A Bunny's Caravan, and Moving Mountains, which is quite the list of influences. Yet The World Is A Beautiful Place... make the sound their own, with a big emphasis on atmosphere and instrumentation. With 2010's EP, Formlessness, the band solidified themselves as an up and coming band well worth keeping an eye on. It's not difficult to see why either, as the excellent--albeit short--EP was filled with personality and poise far beyond the band's years. Since then, a number of releases and splits have surfaced each showing a maturation and refinement. Hopefully this all culminates in one hell of a debut album from a band that has something to prove.
