Further Seems Forever
Further Seems Forever are rather fundamental in presenting who they are, and who they want to be once their roster settles down. They cycled through three lead singers in twice as many years, their sound changing slightly with each one. Launched in Pomona Beach, Florida, with singer Chris Carraba (who moved on to Dashboard Confessional fame), they picked up a little more edge and intensity with Jason Gleason, and settled somewhere in-between with melodic, beleaguered rawness when Jon Bunch came on board. They seem to have found their collective voice now, with guitars driving forward in steady 4/4, 8/8 rock rhythm and an inspirational message that echoes throughout.
