The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die
The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die
The World Is a Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid to Die are an atmospheric emo / indie rock band from Willimantic, CT. The band was formed in 2009 and has undergone several lineup changes since its inception. TWIABP's now 8 piece lineup writes the songs collaboratively and often on-the-spot with vocal duties shared by 4 members. The band's sound is easily compared to second wave post-emo indie rock bands of the late 90s and early 2000s and their atmospheric moments are often tagged as "post-rock." The band creates their dense textured sound with multi-layered and heavily effected guitars as well as synthesizer, cello, and trumpet.

"On their new single, Past/Future, youthful Eastside band Special Explosion float into candied atmospheres and whirling pop distortion without abandoning their sharp, crunchy guitar and catchy hooks. The band blends Northwest indie rock into a fogged bliss, and it levitates over its listener with daunting earnestness, sort of like if Built to Spill were more like My Bloody Valentine in 1991 (or now)." - brittnie fuller (the stranger)
