Welcome back to Hatchet reviews music! It’s been a while, but I’ve finally found the time (a.k.a. I’ve been sick all weekend with nothing to do) to listen to, take notes, and formulate words about Balance and Composure’s newest album.
Balance and Composure are an alternative rock/post-hardcore group from Doylestown PA (only two hours from my residence, practically a local band) and are nearly 10 years old. They have three full length albums and several EP’s.
Balance and Composure’s third full length album, Light We Made, was released on October 7th of 2016 on Vagrant Records. It is a bit of a departure from their previous albums, as will happen with any evolving musicians, but Light We Made is so undeniably Balance and Composure. I wouldn’t put this album in the ‘post-hardcore’ genre, it is just too darn chill. The music is so relaxing and soothing, it is great to lay down with a cat on your feet and zone out too. It was a wonderful time.
Fair warning, the video for Postcard is a bit bizarre.
