“Out of the ashes comes a band on the verge of the revival of emo, punk, and hardcore. Approaching Troy (a name that comes straight from the early 2000s aesthetic) write songs that are reminiscent of earlier Victory and Rise Records bands. Right off the bat, Approaching Troy has re-embodied the mall emo/post-hardcore genre without limiting it to a certain audience. The songs have a heavy drive to them with intricate melodies that range between pop punk, hardcore and occasionally metalcore. The opening track “Dear Sadie” sounds like a fusion of Taking Back Sunday and Hidden In Plain View with dual vocals and harmonious parts. Much of the songs flow in this style as well. The vocals really add what the band needs to finish off their nostalgic song. “The Rescue” is the first time we truly hear the softer side of Approaching Troy. The song is sandwiched perfectly in the middle of the EP. It doesn’t slow down the EP at all, instead giving it a little bit of a shift in melody.”
