Local Atlanta powerhouse Blis is set to hit the road on tour this October following the anticipated release of their first full-length album, No One Loves You. The tour is filled with all local bands: Blis, Microwave, and Big Jesus, and it's a true showcase of Atlanta’s talent. The consistent theme of Blis’ music is the unique voice of their vocalist, powerful riffs, and lyrics that evoke a level of introspection that is rare amongst the post-hardcore, emo scene. Vocalist and song-writer, Aaron Gossett, took the time to discuss with me the inspiration behind the album, what life looks like for him now, and the southeast music scene.

Reverb soaked, exasperated vocals open Blis’ sophomore EP, Starting Fires in My Parent’s House. Gosset begins each line as if the wind got knocked out of his chest with the previous guitar chug. “Time…slowed…down,” each word breathed with what feels like Aaron Gosset’s last.

The entire 2014 EP is a whirlwind. Clean guitar melodies turn into long drawn out rhythmic build ups before exploding into distorted noise and chaos.  Blis uses dynamics, contrast, and beautiful melodies throughout the less than fifteen minute EP.
