Meadows is a melodic hardcore band from Birmingham. They include pieces of post-rock, hardcore, and indie-rock in their music. Meadows is most desirable for fans of Touché Amoré, Counterparts, Defeater, Pianos Become The Teeth, Have Heart, and La Dispute. The diversity and originality Meadows bring to their music makes them unique and refreshing. Combining the different genres bind their unique sound together cohesively. Another factor in their music is their Christian faith. It impacts the lyrics and the emotional connection it makes with the listener. Their motto, “Sowing seeds of love amidst fields of hate”, defines their goal of showing love to anyone who encounters their music.
Likewise is Meadows’ first full length album. It was released on March 24th, 2017. The 42 minute album starts off with hard hitting songs leaving a loud impact, and then takes more ambient tones throughout the center of the track listing. As the album progresses it goes through different sounds and constantly keeping your emotional connection. The last few tracks pick up the pace again and leave you with the strong title track song Likewise.
Meadows’ next show will be May 12th, at The Syndicate Lounge in support of Chasing Victory and I Am Terrified. Their live performance is exceptional, and not to be passed by. They capture the sounds and tones on their album Likewise perfectly through their live shows. The emotional and hard hitting songs will refresh and impact you greatly.
