Minneapolis-based Epic Emo-Punks HUMAN KINDNESS' music fuses 90s emo, post-rock, hardcore and classic rock in search of the hugest guitar-based sounds possible.

Human Kindness are the kind of dudes who refuse to take their hearts off their sleeves or turn down their amps, cramming each song with dueling guitar leads, classical accompaniment and words upon word upon words. Yet somehow, it all works: the wall of sound approach adds high drama to mundane stories - about party paranoia and academic fatigue, in this case - and elevates it to the sublime. If there's a path to heaven that involves a dying pen and a broken amp, these guys are definitely going to be the ones to find it.
