Review Type: 

They hail from Switzerland, and play a style of music that’s a mix between hardcore and punk, with lots of indie influences, and sometimes even some poppy elements in it.

Is it a band I like?  I might have back in my younger days, when the occasional experiment was welcomed.  But nowadays?  I doubt it.

Not that their music is bad.   There are lots of nice guitar riffs, and the vocals aren’t too bad either.  But these days I’m not that big a fan of punk or hardcore anymore, as a matter of fact I’ve never been a fan of hardcore at all.  And despite the fact that Archers and Arrows’s music is rather melodical it doesn’t do the trick for me.

Yet despite all this, there are certain tracks I do like.  My favorite one is ‘Sing to the wind’, and second favorite … well, a hard contest was fought out between ‘Danse Macabre’ and ‘Alone Together’, with none of them really gaining the upper hand, so I guess it’s a joined second place.
