Cousins - Two Steps Back

Our third entry comes from Louisville, KY. A town that seems to "get" what early Emo was trying to do... musicianship, songwriting, affecting (but not oppressive) emotion. We're not talking about the stuff your little sister liked in high school, more like the stuff record store guys would talk 1993. Bands like Sunny Day Real Estate, Brand New, Get Up Kids, Saves the get what we mean.

Cousins descended from a Louisville band called Amherst who were part of a like-minded true-to-form KY emo/punk scene. Hometown heroes down there for sure. Cousins were just one band to carry the torch after Amherst splintered and this is from their first EP. The band selected this track, and we shot an image (on 120 film) that we thought fit the vibe.

There are also a few other shots we did. One of which with our app, LightBomber. Check 'em out -
