Recently, I abounding a Brand New concert and wondered afterwards I larboard the show, how accepted is Emo music still in today’s society?
Emo music was at its aiguille in the aboriginal to mid-2000s, and was a big allotment for teenagers and adolescent adults in the United States. Bands that fell into this brand were bands like My Chemical Romance, American Football, and Dashboard Confessional.
The acumen why I mainly wondered if this brand was still accepted was the acknowledgment from assorted humans I talked to afore the Brand New show. I got reactions alignment from “Who’s that?” to “Lucky, I’m jealous.” from humans alignment in altered age groups. The humans who knew mostly of Brand new were in the age accumulation who would accept been in their adolescence in the mid-2000s.
So what I’ve been analytic back then, was it just a fad and how best will Emo music be on this planet? It reminds me a lot about how new genres are arising every 5 years or so. For example, Emo music throughout the mid-2000s, afresh “Hardcore/Screamo” music, afresh indie music the endure few years or so.
Do age and the aeon you grew up in accept a big allotment in what you listened to? I grew up in the “Hardcore/Screamo” music era, and that was a big accord to a lot of people. As I started blind out with humans who grew up alert to Emo music, my adulation for that accomplished brand got stronger and stronger as I was added apparent to it. When I had a ample angle of cerebration that “Hardcore” music was the best affair ever, I noticed that abounding Hardcore bands were started throughout the few years I was in adulation with it, and it seemed that the mentality for concerts like Warped Tour and bigger festivals confused from getting primarily Punk/Emo to primarily Hardcore. As declared before, music does play a huge role in teenagers and adolescent adults lives, so as ceremony new accumulation of teenagers and adolescent adults arise, will the arrangement of a new accepted brand appear every few years?
So what do you think? What are your thoughts on this accomplished Emo music scene? I’ve noticed that added and added bands accept been accomplishing 10-year ceremony tours for their added accepted albums as of recently. Do you anticipate that will atom up or accord a deathwatch up alarm for Emo music acceptable added accepted again?
