Sleeper Set Sail have feelings, and they're not afraid to admit it. They're laying it on thick with heavy guitar riffs and pounding drums, dynamic shifts and melodramatic lyrics musing on love, love, and love - all obviously meant to evoke emotion. Eyes Just Like Forest Fires documents a popular Southern Ontario emo sound, and here it's well-presented and seems honest, but it's also somewhat repetitive, and not particularly innovative. It's not hard to see this band becoming quite successful, though, with a radio-friendly quality and relatable subject matter which appeals to the kids.
Sleeper Set Sail glide into the Funhaus Saturday (June 4).
