April 11th, 2014 by Margaret Jokoh

Lithium Burn 

Grade: A

Deleted Scene’s new album, set to release April 15 definitely captures the essence of their music-art rock. Melodic rhythms, infused with some math rock, helps set this band apart from others. This album definitely demonstrates are much this band has grown, how mature they are and how knowledge/talented they are on their instruments. Lithium Burn also gives you a very pop sound, heard on the title track ” Haircuts/Uniforms.” Read the rest of this entry »
