Klang post-hardcore/emo band Carthreena released an album titled Breathe For Tomorrow, and we recently got our hands on this cut that will take you back to your high school days jamming to Alesana. Here are the 4 songs that are worth listening the spin on Breathe For Tomorrow!
The second song in the album, Cancer is pure emo fuel. The chanting at the end of the song really defines the genre this band is playing. Post-hardcore at its best. The vocal style really reminds me of A Skylit Drive’s Michael Jagmin.
This 5th song really gives this album a twist, placed in the middle of other songs, it’s like a detour in the album. The sound is more towards easycore rather than emo and that vibe is most evident in the beginning riff. The lyrics are a little bit political and patriotic at the same time. It’s not every day you get to hear a local emo band making a song like this!
What does an emo album mean if it doesn’t have any sad, slow and melancholy songs? Well, Remembrance is Cartheena’s answer to this staple of the genre. Feeling down and just need a song to give you the feels? This song is perfect for you!
This song is the star of this album, probably the best song of the whole. This song features Dean from Kids on the Movie, and he really gives this song a kick of energy, living up to his main band’s reputation.
Carthreena is Nhajril as vocalist and guitarist, Shazwan as lead guitarist, Naz Mikanaz as bassist & backup vocalist, and Fitri as drummer. They are currently on a Malaysia tour, promoting Breathe For Tomorrow.
