I can absolutely say that this is by far one band who I instantly fell in love with. is a rarity of indie music talent that formed in mid 2007. Coming from El Paso, Texas, they are one of a kind, whose sounds compare to Two Door Cinema Club, The Pass, Passion Pit, and influences from Circa Survive, Deftones, and Death Cab for Cutie.
Avindale leaves their listeners lost for words because they are anything but amateur. The first song “Azure” made me actually say “wow”. That song strongly drew me in. What I liked the most about the song was vocalist, Oscar Alderete. The lead singer seems so passionate. You can feel the emotion in his voice. With the use of the drums, the guitars, the bass, and keyboard, it’s the perfect mix of ambience, passion and melody, which attracts all listeners. My favorite song would have to be “Summer Meets Winter”. Just that first riff of the guitar catches my attention. It is just captivating. “Blindman’s Mirror” would have to be my second favorite song. The slow bass line and the easygoing guitar rhythms can make anyone lay back and actually get lost within the music. This band deserves to be recognized on a larger level. Avindale is a band that you should invest your time into listening to and enjoying their soothing beats and rhythms. It is very rare that you would find real music that is not all that well known. The more this band puts out new music, it’s sure to gain more fans and popularity. Avindale should continue their style of music and reach out for more of a diverse audience.
