I've written about the underground emo scene with the kind of consistency that reflects my genuine obsession with a lot of the new crop of bands—a lot, but not all. There are plenty of groups that never really clicked or made much of an impression on me; Pennsylvania outfit Balance & Composure, for example. But earlier this week they finally knocked me out with a new tune off their forthcoming The Things We Think We're Missing. On "Reflection," which is today's 12 O'Clock Track, Balance & Composure skillfully employ a slower version of the cycling guitar patterns of contemporary emo for a sweeping, cosmic melody. Stream the song below, and if you're as hooked as I am, preorder the album from No Sleep.
