We dig the male/female vocal tandem of East Coast prog-metal fivesome The Earth & I. Not only is the screamo singing more than convincing, but when paired with the confident, husky-toned female power of Kendyle Wolven––and the band’s tight, turn-on-a-dime instrumentation—something special emerges. On “CGMTC” she displays her soaring, emotive abilities, which echo Paramore’s Haley Williams. “Slight Departure” and “Skies Like Fences” give Wolven and her mates plenty to busy themselves with––perhaps too much at times––but their daring dips into blues-rock and even smooth-jazz are unexpected treats for listeners (Coheed & Cambria fans, perhaps) who appreciate a challenge.
