The last couple of years have been big for The Story So Far. After the band’s debut LP Under Soil and Dirt, they blew up in a way that few other bands seem to manage these days. The Story So Far became known for their aggressive take on pop punk, and continued to show major growth as musicians with last year’s What You Don’t See.
This year they decided to go in a completely different direction with Songs Of, an acoustic EP featuring new versions of songs from What You Don’t See, one new track, and a cover of Bob Marley’s “Waiting In Vain.”
Songs Of opens with “The Glass,” a track off What You Don’t See. The song is mellow and open, a huge step back from the band’s well-known intensity. And while lead singer Parker Cannon’s voice is typically harsh and full of animosity, here he is quietly distant. This new voice is further explored as the EP continues, and holds up particularly well in “Navy Blue,” the track that follows “The Glass.”
“Navy Blue” is the only new song on the EP and, as a result, is the only one that sounds like it was written to be performed acoustically. The bright guitars provide balance to Cannon’s strained vocals. The highlight here, though, are the booming strings that hauntingly ring out as Cannon confesses: “I hope this makes you sad.”
