Biography

LARCENIST, of Boston, MA, creates compositions that run the gamut from dark and soulful ballads, to folk-country influence, to large scale sing along post-punk, all while carrying a traditional punk sensibility. All of the founding members, transplants of various areas in Upstate New York, bring their small town influence and stories into their newer city surroundings. Their “country boy” influence allows them to tell intricate tales about the death of mill-towns, the downtrodden blue-collar work community, and bring an appreciation for rustic simplicity. The broken spaces between distorted guitar and driving drums fill with classical violin melodies offered by their newest member. If the beautiful and complex instrumental lines don’t tug at your heartstrings, then the images and story lines that they put together will.
