WHEN WE WAS KIDS
When We Was Kids is a progressive rock band based out of Cicero, IL Their sound incorporates progressive and experimental stylings over post-hardcore base
The band established the roots of Sawbuck through house shows with other post-hardcore sounds. These were intimate events that often came to capacity through invite-only and privatized methods of concealing the address. Nevertheless, this gritty scene made music accessible. But then, is that not the point of DIY?
But since their backyard show and small festival days in 2018, the band has changed. Now a five-piece with two guitarists and a drastic, more heavy change in sound. The difference is no spur-of-the-moment decision. While post-hardcore and math-rock bands such as the Fall of Troy, Animals as Leaders, and The Dillinger Escape Plan. The broken rhythm and randomized cacophony are still prevalent in the newer material. The heavy guitar drops are more to elevate the Cathartic elements of the songs drawn from influences like the Chariot, Every Time I Die, and Vulvodynia.
Sawbuck plans on continuously changing and challenging its sound while maintaining that availability to its listeners as a DIY band.
