At a time where most of us could agree that very few artists in today’s music world are genuine in their approach, a new grade of musicians from Buffalo, NY arrive to oppose the general commonality of the underground scene, with their dark, but albeit authentic and heartfelt brand of emo infused indie rock. As their debut EP “You Can’t Rebuild Forever” makes its mark, the honest representation of thoughts, ideas, and emotions will certainly be something that resonates with every listener. The Traditional is a unique example of a band that is able to embrace their musical influences rather than copy them to call it a product. Expect nothing but a raw, high energy, and honest standard from The Traditional on record, as well as in the live setting. Their strides towards sharing their design with as many listeners as possible can only be measured by the integrity of the band’s music and their drive to work as hard as they can to get their message heard. In a moment where the stereotypes seem to have outweighed the art, The Traditional remind us that there is still something very real about what it means to express yourself through music.
