Young At The Bend
Devil You Know Records
Massachusetts trio Born Without Bones released their third full length to date, Young At The Bend, a few days ago via Devil You Know Records. Their latest album has a much more personal and heartfelt approach than their previous releases, and lyrically this seems to be a much darker album as Young At The Bend was informed by a personal loss that vocalist and guitarist Scott Ayotte suffered shortly before the recording of the album. This event has fuelled the songwriting and makes Young At The Bend feel like a personal act of catharthis.
Musically Born Without Bones have always had their roots in DIY punk scene, but they’ve adopted other influences over the years, in particular the hooks of 90s alternative rock and the blue collar soul of heartland rock are present in the mix along with a distinctly pop sensibility. After a brief initial blast of white noise Young At The Bend starts in earnest with the charged opener, Takes Time, and across the whole of Young At The Bend the album remains a cathartic heartfelt blast the veers through gentler indie and emo elements that are delivered with a punk attitude, and the whole package is carried on a back bone of 90’s alt rock, this combination certainly makes Young At The Bend an unpredictable listen if nothing else.
The only time I felt That Born Without Bones truly bared their fangs on Young At The Bend was on I Am A Ruin, a track that takes the lead from the punk roots, but for the most part this is an album that has a distinct sheen of polished 90’s alternative rock influences. Born Without Bones have delivered a deeply personal album that exposes the emotional scars of personal loss, but it does this without being maudlin or self indulgent, the end product is a emotionally charged and diverse album that has managed to channel personal loss into the creation of a something positive.
