The year is 2015 and emo is once again thriving. We’ve seen countless releases trudging at the forefront of the barren scape of the internet in defense of the genre. In this march, homage to bands like Algernon Cadwallader, American Football, and Cap’N Jazz became the norm. We’ve seen this style perfected by bands like Big Awesome and The Obsessives, both of which have released incredible debut albums this year. They say all things come in threes, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring you missing link to this trifecta. They call themselves California Cousins. Their music is as raucous and rowdy as it is heartfelt and honest. They have a new EP called ‘Geroge’s Bridge’ coming out on September 28th. You can pre-order the EP here, and you can stream it in full after the cut. Brace yourselves, she’s a doozy!
