Longtime Reno band Vague Choir has a new release. Vague Choir’s frontman Mark Earnest described their music in an older melodic punk vein – The Replacements and Jawbreaker.
“The first three songs are loud and upbeat. The last three songs are moody and slower. It seems like a good way to approach our fragmented lives these days. Pretend it’s on vinyl,” the band notes about the release.
Find “Double Exposure,” the band’s fourth release, a six-song digital album, on Bandcamp.
