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.
If there’s one thing that San Marcos will never run out of, it’s bands. You can barely throw a rock without hitting someone that contains enough talent and personality to hold a crowd’s attention. Manners is one of the groups that, over the past year or so, has stayed vigilant and managed to make a name for themselves. Because KTSW 89.9 understands the importance of giving props where props are due, the band was recently invited to bless Studio C Sessions with a performance of their song Creeps. Check it out, stay in tune to KTSW 89.9 and in line with what Manners are keeping up to, and always support local.
