Record Setter - I Owe You Nothing
Judy shouts during the opening seconds of “Someplace,” guitars revving in place and then dropping out to shine a spotlight on her way out: “How long was that door open? I never noticed it before!” Record Setter then hit the ground running at 200 mph, melding screamo abrasion, pop-punk melody, and molten shoegaze textures, their past decade of musical and emotional repression burned off in an all-consuming blue streak. – Stereogum (Band To Watch)
Explosive, unpredictable, and persistently candid throughout, I Owe You Nothing is a lesson in introspection and identity. The Denton, Texas-based Record Setter are unflinchingly inventive with every new release, creating intricate compositions which balance their fierce spirit and delicate emotions. Frenzied and impassioned vocals soar over thunderous guitars, ferocious percussion, and bone-shaking basslines, comprising fervent songs that oscillate between raw powerful screamo and affective post-rock melodies. Through introspective lyricism and turbulent sonic soundscapes, Record Setter chronicle the lifelong journey of coming to terms with yourself, your anxieties, and your mistakes, ultimately rewarded by a sense of empowered independence.
