Press Play: This Is Pointless
This Is Pointless are a four-piece emo revivalesque band from Boston, Massachusetts. Much like the beloved Algernon Cadwallader, Glocca Morra, and You Blew It!, this emotional quartet capitalizes on a jangly rhythm section, lo-fi twinkly leads, and dodgy vocals. However, what makes this band stand out amongst many of today’s emo revivalists is their youthfulness. Most of the members are still under legal drinking age, and it shows (in a good way). Their song, “So That’s What They Do In College,” from their debut EP, And We Ain’t Even Drunk Yet, accurately describes the maturity gap between you and those you used to know in your later years of adolescence/early adulthood. While classic emo-lovers are no longer able to watch bands like Park Jefferson, Brave Bird, or Algernon Cadwallader, This Is Pointless brings hope to those looking to fill the void of beer spilling, water heater breaking basement shows.
