From across the pond comes the U.K. band, Maycomb with their debut album, “I Opened My Heart To Caustic Things.” Since forming in 2009, the band has been on the road, touring with the likes of The Wonder Years and Saves The Day. When they finally entered the studio earlier this year, their songs were already perfected from stage performances and ready to record. The band managed to capture that live feeling into their first release.
The album begins with the powerful, raw, alternative rock of “New Storms” as you instantly feel the honesty within their music. Songs like “Old Gold” and “Sinking Song” have that young, fresh appeal to their sound. Maycomb begins to slow things down for “Out Of Darkness Cometh Light,” but quickly dive right into the energetic “When The Time Comes” and “Start Missing Everybody.” The album finishes up with the continued, up-tempo rhythm of “Whatever Happens Happens.”
