real emo


There are two (and quite possibly more) bands by the name Julia, 1) Julia was an american / band, active in the mid 1990's.
Their style resembled the frantic sound of eastcoast (more specifically DC) emo, complete with octave chords and dark, yet melodic, basslines, thundering and slow drumming and intensly emotional vocals. On many occasions it sounded like Mathew was about to break down. Some members were playing on Lumber. Members:
Mathew Yeager (Vocals)

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.

These Miles

After nearly a year of a studio procrastination, forming early 2012 in London, UK, These Miles are probably ready to fill some ears. A set of much-loved songs brings a sound that crunches Texas Is the Reason, Interpol, At the Drive-In, Cursive, Thrice, Quicksand, and Propagandhi into a veritable canvas of frantic and driving rock. Crunching guitars with intricate melodies sound like an assault of ideas realised with considered pop hooks. The drums pound and double-kick with the urgency and energy of a beloved hardcore band, and the bass picks out a groove that gives the songs a furious swing.

Texas Is the Reason

Texas Is the Reason was a post-hardcore band founded by former Shelter guitarist Norm Arenas and 108 drummer Chris Daly in 1994. A foundational quartet in the post-Sunny Day Real Estate movement of emo music, Texas Is the Reason played melodious but forceful rock music before disbanding in 1997. Norm Arenas (guitar), guitarist for the hardcore Hare Krishna band Shelter, formed Texas Is the Reason with friend and then fellow Hare Krishna devotee Chris Daly (drums), formerly of the band 108, which played music of a similar kind to Shelter's, some time in the early 1990s in New York City.
