"in 'parting the sea between brightness and me', touche amore's creative formula is driven by emotional affect, not contemporary studio effects. in the purest form possible, raw shouted vocals and clean manic guitars fight for volume over roomy bass and percussion. creating a sound that is shockingly simple as it is emotionally engaging. the serene and fragile opening notes of 'tilde' serve as the album's introductory serenade before touche amore pound and jangle into the hook-laden song. and seconds later, when vocalist / lyricist jeremy bolm screams "...i'm parting the sea between brightness and me...", a tone of desperation sets in that resonates throughout the duration of the album. 'from the first strikes of their angular yet melodic chords, it's apparent that touche amore have awoken something long forgotten in the hardcore/punk genre. bringing to mind the balance of rage and melody that 'revolution summer' era dc bands rites of spring and ignition once carried. within each song they build an awe inspiring musical tension while impassioned vocalist jeremy bolm's shouts resonate, ripe with intellectual introspection. this collective outpouring of traditional hardcore anger and emotional hardcore openness ultimately coalesces into something beautiful, vulnerable, and refreshingly real. in 'parting the sea between brightness and me', touche amore's creative formula is driven by emotional affect, not contemporary studio effects. in the purest form possible, raw shouted vocals and clean manic guitars fight for volume over roomy bass and percussion. creating a sound that is shockingly simple as it is emotionally engaging."
