I was introduced to We Never Learned to Live at ArcTanGent this year and their set was one of the best of the weekend. Live, the band generate raw emotion, energy and talent to form form an impressive blend of post-hardcore and post-rock. The band’s latest record Silently, I Threw Them Skyward manages to convey all of the qualities that makes the band an impressive live act, managing to get the production just right: it doesn’t suffocate the raw emotion of the music, but rather enhances it.

I’m certainly looking forward to catching the band live again when I can and now that I’ve had the chance to absorb the album, I’m sure the experience will be even better.
