After a confusing online mix-up, Sinatra changed their name to MY FIRST CASTLE.
With their early work, the band concocted some very impressive clashes of soft noodling (like Native) and Alta) and some aggressive sections (which sound similar to Since By Man) and a poppy moment here or there (early Fall Of Troy).
This fantastic mixture of styles is showcased perfectly on "Do You Want Me To Save Dude?".
After the name change, the band released 'Everything, All At Once'. This album follows the same basic song-writing principles as their earlier work - although the poppy Dance Gavin Dance vocals are at the forefront. I enjoy the new album, but nothing on it compares to "Do You Want Me To Save Dude?" and "Please, Choose The Path Of Least Violence" - as I don't think the ultra-poppy clean vocals mesh as well with the band's sound. But that's just my subjective opinion!
Definitely check these guys out if you like singing and screaming all rolled into one.
