Sorority Noise / The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die

Split

Triple Crown Records surprise released this split single from Sorority Noise and The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die at the start of November, it contains a new track from each of the Connecticut based bands that feature on this split. Both of these bands are prolific in their output, and they have both taken the opportunity to unveil new material, despite already having brought out new releases earlier this year with the EP’s It Kindly Stopped For Me and Formlessness respectively.

Sorority Noise occupy the first half of this split single, they have contributed Leaf Ellis. This is a mournful and reflective track for the first two and half minutes, fortunately I managed to resist the urge to skip to the next track as it kicks into a more uplifting noisier sound before they ease back into the sorrowful tone. Leaf Ellis is a track that is dedicated to wrestling with your inner demons and trying to make sense of the thoughts that consume you. In contrast the ridiculously named The World Is A Beautiful Place And I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, who occupy the flip side with Smoke And Felt, have contributed a more upbeat number that seems to have a strong influence from The Weakerthans. This band, I’m not typing that name again, have released countless splits, singles and EP’s, as well as two full length albums, since their inception, and for me this constantly expanding and contracting collective have produced the stronger track, it is a fast paced emo tinged indie number featuring dual vocals that hits the spot nicely.

Triple Crown Records have bought two bands together that both originated in Connecticut, like many split singles this is a story of two halves and styles that compliment each other. Whilst the contrast between the two bands approach to their material is marked, both have their merits and I have been introduced to two bands that have previously bypassed me, and that is often they joy of a split single.
