Low Standards, High Fives delivers wondrously orchestrated emotive harmonisations, layered by extraordinary chants. The group tends to achieve a mathematically precise combination of emo, indie rock, and alternative sound. The guitars are transitioning and racing for uncertain dominance with such ease, substituting their roles throughout the compositions. Each number retains a certain emotiveness and a melancholic atmosphere that will unquestionably suit to admirers of Midwest emo scene or indie rock sound. Like the guitars, the vocals illustrate the themes through various interpolations, transitions, solo segments and appealing singalongs where the band sounds almost monolithic.

Equally hearable basslines support these polyphonous maneuvers with warm-sounding low-end tones. Each bassline offers in-depth support to the technically demanding sound of the group. Exceptional drumming performance additionally supports all the instrumentations with expansive rhythmical acrobatics, which in so many cases, goes beyond standard rhythmical structures characteristic for the abovementioned genres. The entire band provides remarkable musicianship throughout the recording.

Low Standard, High Fives undoubtfully invested heart and soul into 'Are we doing the best we can?' and there’s a dozen of potential alternative radio hits within this astounding debut full-length album. Don’t miss this release if you’re deeply into emo, indie or alternative rock. Grab a copy for yourself or your loved ones.
