Recently, photographer Christopher Garcia and I paid Orlando indie rock quartet Pathos, Pathos a visit while they were practicing for their EP release show. He brought his camera, and I sat in the corner and watched. Work hard. Play hard. Here are photographs from that session, along with my thoughts on Pathos, Pathos’ debut EP, Familiar Homes. Enjoy.
Pathos, Pathos at WE ARE ANIMALS (our first show) featuring fellow Orlando acts Pasty Cline, Witch Kings, and Tiger Fawn, and Brooklyn psych rock outfit, Stuyedeyed.
“Darling I’ve been seeing a reflection of myself in your eyes.
Oh paint me all the colors of the sky.
Blues and greens fill up my insides.”
The sounds on Familiar Homes are like a bite of out a sweet, crisp apple on a beautiful day. Matthew Walsh’s sugary vocal melodies ring throughout these songs, weaving in and out of the light-as-air guitar lines. Simply put, these songs are pleasing to my ears.
So there’s sweet, let’s move on to crisp. All of the instrumentation on Familiar Homes, like the guitar lines I mentioned, sounds phenomenal. As a live band, Pathos, Pathos has chops. I’m glad that talent shines through on the recordings. On songs like “Tiger” and “Speak In Tongues,” each instrument is clear and pops in its own way.
FAV TRACKS: “Tiger,” “Show Me Love,” “Blues and Greens”
