You're Not As___As You Think is Sorority Noise’s latest, powerful and dramatically uneasy ride through the depths of darkness and beyond. Produced by Mike Sapone (Brand New, Taking Back Sunday), You're Not As___As You Think is at times cautiously delicate yet equally ferocious and full of bite. There are remarkable emo-tinged similarities to acts such as Brand New and The Early November, however, Sorority Noise somehow manage to show off an uneasy, playful characteristic also.
With its whirlwind of hearty intensity and utter vulnerability heard through every screaming vocal, the record has truly been given nothing but the most honest of treatments. Singer/guitarist Cameron Boucher hasn't shied away from detailing best friend tragedies or the gloomy ideas that live within the frontman’s mind. No mental picture or school of thought is left unconsidered and this is something that makes You're Not As___As You Think such an absorbing release.
Dominance of striking sounding drums and alluring guitars are the core to a vocal performance that has the ability to chop and change with every subject matter being covered. Continually questioning relatable topics of annoyance, uncertainty and desire, Boucher is able to bring his expression to life with imagery that grows more robust with each note he sings.
‘No Halo’ is a highlight and as album opener, it sets the tone for the unforeseen journey that Sorority Noise are about to embark on for the rest of the record. Hard-hitting, unadulterated and packed with unmitigated hopefulness, You're Not As___As You Think is the light at the end of the tunnel. At a time where throughout the world and emotional uncertainty is shared by so many, Sorority Noise are making sure that we understand we are all on this crazy trip together.
