One of my favorite ensembles in Johnson City goes by the name These Are The Angles.
With heavy guitar vamping, touching melodies and lyrics to match, these guys will take you on a journey of emotional depths.
After releasing a demo, and a full length album entitled, “Lifeboat,” they have created a following of fans that relate to writer and front-man Matt Carter’s honesty. His lyrics seem as though they have been extracted directly from a personal diary.
His writing successfully depicts the beauty that comes from the painful experiences that come from the human condition, with songs that deal with death of close family, heartbreak and hopelessness, all while keeping in touch with the positives that come with it and overcoming such obstacles.
Needless to say, my eyes are usually closed when seeing these guys play.
