Band of the Week – State of Man

November 18, 2012

This week’s band is one I found while living in Texas, even though they’re an Atlanta band. State of Man is a group of three rocker guys, and their sound is definitely a little more mainstream than that of last week’s group, The Dotted Eyes. What I like most about this group is the fact that none of their songs sound the same. While all of the songs definitely fall in the rock category, they range from relatively hard rock anthems (“Rise Again”, “Never Forget”) to lighter ballads (“Be Still My Heart”).

Their first album, Both Sides of The Story, released in 2006, doesn’t have a bad song on it. I’m not as big a fan of their second album, In This Place. Their most popular song is probably the first one on Both Sides of The Story, “Swallow Your Fears.”

The group’s self-professed goal is to bring back the sound of the 90’s alternative groups, such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, etc. While I don’t know if they sound exactly like those groups, they do the genre credit while bringing their own unique flavor. So check out State of Man for a 90’s alternative flashback.
