Opening Statements :: Manners Releases Debut EP

a0311270352_10

After putting in a year or two of solid gigging and songwriting, the San Marcos-based trio Manners has finally released their debut project, a self-titled EP.  The 5-song collection showcases the band’s ability to write songs that are cutting in their introspection while still maintaining a tone of humor (albeit it, a very sharp humor).  The band has a playful energy, but the songs focus on topics such as promiscuity, self-doubt at the expense of putting someone on a pedestal, trust and heavy hitters of that nature.  The garage-rock feel of the recordings make the songs connectable due to their honesty and rawness.  For a debut project, Manners shows a lot of potential for the band… hopefully it leads to future projects.
