LOW STANDARDS HIGH FIVES, a three-guitars indie rock band from Turin, Italy found inspiration for their latest album in the still vital catalogue of 90’s/00’s emo acts like Mineral, American Football, The Appleseed Cast, and The Promise Ring, and you can easily hear them kindle that same nostalgic feeling throughout. With “Are We Doing the Best We Can?” the quintet deliver a touching, subtle, yet dynamic and spirited work that will go down well with lovers of Sunny Day Real Estate, The Promise Ring, Braid, Penfold, American Football, Pop Unknown and The Appleseed Cast. The raucous post-punk guitar assaults are infused with an inescapable melodic sensibility.
Recorded live and mixed by Mànuel Volpe @ Spazio Rubedo in Torino, mastered by saffmastering.com in Chicago, “Are We Doing the Best We Can?” by LOW STANDARDS HIGH FIVES is out now on Engineer Records, Bandcamp, and Spotify. Artwork by Carlo Di Stefano of wakeuproad.com.
