Responders' jammy "Face Today"- Indie rock pushed through blues filters on self titled EP





































The song Face Today by Boston, Mass based 5 piece indie rock band Responders is hinged on jammy counterpoints and Kelly Bruce's powerfully clean vocal performance. Clean guitar lines erupt into screaming leads while the drum and bass rhythms feel tightly wound. On their self titled EP the band pushes their sound through blues rock filters with hints of proggy jazz undertones. Responders are (the aforementioned) Kelly Bruce (lead vox, percussion, piano), Shane Fitzgerald (guitar, piano, vox), Michael Benjamin (guitar, vox), Damon Ivester (bass) and Eli Kovacevich (drums, vox, piano, percussion).
