They say everything is done bigger in Texas and Stegosaur might be concrete proof of that. With the band’s latest release, a 3 song 7″ entitled Adventure, Stegosaur take the tried and true formula of post-hardcore and turn the sound on its ear. The band calls your bluff and pushes their melodies through the roof while never forsaking the gift of rock.
For such a young band, Stegosaur has an incredibly mature approach to songwriting. These three songs encompass an impressive mixture of tempos, moods and textures as the band waxes and wanes their way to something unique, yet still warmly familiar. Stegosaur has the remarkable ability to write infectious and melodic (indie) rock songs that truly grab the listener with a bold and direct immediacy.
During the 7″ opener, “A Headache”, lead singer Jerid Reed Morris belts out the line “…strike a balance between mean and pop sensibility…” and quite masterfully Stegosaur have done exactly that on Adventure.
