On Tuesday, the latest release from Baltimore emo act Pianos Become the Teeth was released digitally. It is a split 7" with Touche Amore, the excellent post-hardcore act from Los Angeles. The record is also Pianos' first release since "The Lack Long After," its sophomore album from November 2011. You can stream both songs here.
Pianos' contribution, "Hiding," can be streamed above. It is a noticeable leap forward, not because vocalist Kyle Durfey sings more than he screams, but because he sounds surprisingly great doing so. This makes for another new, exciting development: His lyrics, an asset for the quintet, can be deciphered with (relative) ease. Weirdly enough, Durfey sounds like Brian Fallon, the Gaslight Anthem singer, at first, but locks into his own bloodletting style quickly.
