Into It. Over It. – “Required Reading” (Stereogum Premiere)

Chris DeVille | February 3, 2016 - 9:56 am

The hype storm that was raging around emo two or three years ago has calmed down significantly, just as Into It. Over It.’s Evan Weiss predicted in a Stereogum cover story. But judging from the early singles from Into It. Over It.’s forthcoming Standards, anyone who has moved on to the next trendy genre is about to miss out on a fantastic album. “No EQ” was practically the platonic ideal of a wistful emo burner, and the triplet-laden “Required Reading” is even better. Weiss spins gentle sighs over a skipping rhythm, building tension over the pitter-patter until the whole thing explodes into a cathartic outburst of soaring vocals and massive guitars. It’s, um, required hearing.

Into It. Over It. will soon be touring atop an extremely enticing bill alongside the World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, the Sidekicks, and Pinegrove:
