Sickle Moon Blues: Weekend Playlist By Infant Island

by | Jun 28, 2019 | MUSIC

Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you an absolutely essential playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.

This time around, we’ve got one from Infant Island, the Fredericksburg-based screamo band who is working hard to carry the torch for Virginia screamo far beyond the Commonwealth. In fact, they just released a 4-way split EP with three bands from various points across North America — New Jersey’s Massa Nera, Illinois’s Frail Body, and Montreal’s dianacrawls. You can grab that EP in vinyl, cassette, or digital form at Infant Island’s Bandcamp.

The band will be headed out on tour in July, and will next play Richmond in August. But until they return to our fair city, they’ve brought us a jam-packed playlist that mixes the past, present, and future of screamo and metallic hardcore into a wide variety of sounds from outside their genre — ranging from quiet folk ballads to soaring post-rock anthems. It’s quite the journey, and is sure to spice up your weekend.

Let it rip, Virginia.
