Rock music has gotten boring. It has become streamlined and formulaic, eagerly fitting in to the template provided for it. It has become listless as too many bands rest on the laurels of those around them. Rock music was intended to be an audible representation of the chaotic and intangible aspects of being human. It is failure, it is weakness, it is struggle, and it is survival throughout.
Hailing from the midwest, The Felix Culpa has evolved to find an intelligent, innovative and honestly original way to convey those aspects. Drawing comparisons all the way across the board from Bjork to At The Drive In, they find their balance somewhere between the intensity of hardcore and the pensiveness of indie art rock.
