Rating: 9/10

I discovered these guys from a ‘suggested page’ from a different band that I had recently liked on Facebook. I was intrigued by the name and the imagery and have a pretty good eye and picking stuff I think I would enjoy. Ourfathers was a pleasant surprise and overwhelmingly fulfilling. Hailing from San Fancisco their debut EP ‘Movements‘ is brutally elegant.
I hopped over to their bandcamp page and was blown away. The reminded me immdiately of the likes of Brand New, Athletics, and a bit of Moving Mountains. Moody post hardcore is -at it’s best- beautifully delicate yet furious and brutal and that’s exactly how ourfathers execute this EP. The songs run deep with emotion as their bio states that they’re an homage to their recently deceases fathers, and puts an additional ominous feel to the tracks.
It’s exactly what you’ll fall in love with for those hardcore fans with a soft spot for the heartfelt and meaningful songs rather than the shallow superficial nonsense that is flooding the airwaves. It’s something to relax the nerves to, but also something to pulverize a punching bag to. These guys ebb and flow with emotion so flawlessly that it’s hard to stop listening.
These guys are definitely a band to look out for and will be securing a spot on my top EPs of 2015.


With a blend somewhere between a movie soundtrack and a empty mausoleum comes the raw emotion of a dying banshee and a convoluted orchestration of reverb and notation. ourfathers. has resided in the city of San Francisco since 2014.

With the catalyst of the founding members fathers passing away- They decided to write an aubade to the recently deceased asking for advice; expecting no answers.

These songs are what they have left of the memories of the men who raised them and the widows they left behind.
