Over the years, they've toured with Taking Back Sunday, Brand New, Say Anything, and New Found Glory. But Eisley (yes, their name is a Star Wars reference) aren't necessarily a clear musical match to the bombastic, overwrought punk of any of those bands whose scene orbit and fan base they often share. Rather, with their open expanses of vocal beauty, piano balladeering, and guitars dripping in rivulets of melancholy, they have more in common with the earnest, vaguely Christian power pop of past tourmates like Switchfoot and Snow Patrol. There's such a palpable sadness to the three DuPree sisters' vocals, they could make a rainbow of kittens sound brutal.
