Truly good emo music is hard to come by these days. Normally I’d have to go far back into my ‘90s and early 2000s favorites to find bands like that. That being said, there are still a select few of amazing bands today that are giving the genre new life, and So-Cal band Old Notes are one of those greats. This three-piece band from Rancho Cucamonga have a classic style that recall those early emo acts such as American Football and Mineral, as well as newer acts such as Citizen. At the same time, the group manages to add their own unique touches to the sound, and their heartfelt lyrics give their last album, Former Self, an earnest and personal feeling throughout. Old Notes is surely one to watch in the alternative rock scene!
