A SIGN OF GREAT THINGS TO COME| Posted September 29, 2008
If any rock band featured in this magazine is set to explode this year, it’s The Myriad. The Seattle quintet found momentum opening for David Crowder Band on its recent fall tour. The largest spotlight, however, came by unexpectedly winning “MTV2’s Breakout Band of 2008”—an honor providing intense marketing year-round for the Koch Records artist.
The Prelude to Arrows is just that, the antecedent to With Arrows, With Poise, The Myriad’s full-length follow-up to its 2005 debut, You Can’t Trust a Ladder. The five-song EP finds the band largely abandoning the Euro-rock that brought them here, retaining only Jeremy Edwardson’s yearning vocal delivery and some musical atmospherics.
Think Sleeping At Last with a slightly more aggressive sound.
“A Thousand Winters Melting” is more piano pop ditty than soaring Brit-rock number and is as catchy as the band’s ever been. “Forget What You Came For” builds to perfection and is clearly the EP’s highlight. Edwardson has never sounded better. Mute Math-like sonic textures are found on “The Holiest of Thieves.”
Prelude ultimately feels like what it is—a tiny taste of goodness—but it’s still an impressive sign of things to come. - Matt Conner
