Having recently released their highly anticipated sophomore full-length and Equal Vision Records debut From The Bird’s Cage Charlotte, NC-based indie outfit HRVRD played at Bethlehem’s Gallery-U.
HRVRD’s set as highlighted through intricate and cinematic guitar riffs with dark, passionate lyrics and powerful, driving rhythms. Effortlessly encompassing the impressive technical qualities of underground progressive-rock and experimental outfits, while remaining accessible through honest, relatable lyrics, the fusion creates a full-bodied, dreamlike ambience filled with catchy, yet sonically sinister melodies. Vocalist Jesse Clasen’s ethereal voice defies genres and offers vast vocal range with a wide spectrum of stylistic tones that stand out as notable without overpowering the outfit’s more than capable instrumentations.Their true talent shines not only in their ability to perfectly juxtapose driving and atmospheric elements in a complimentary manner but also in their use of those musical elements to guide and balance the lyrical storytelling. 
HRVRD will be hitting the road this summer with Equal Vision Records label mates Say Anything, Eisley, Northern Faces, and I the Mighty on Say Anything’s “Rarities and More Tour.”
