Featured Local: She’s A Legend

Kids come to this genre of music because it’s a way to deal with the things going on in their lives. The tobacco industry targets those people and makes them think that music and smoking go hand in hand. Syke is showing people that you don’t need to use to be punk or emo or whatever, that the community itself is better support than tobacco will ever be.

Combing a variety of sounds from the recent Pop-Punk and Emo revival, She‘s a Legend creates a sound and live experience that they can proudly call their own. Pulling from major influences such as Brand New, The Wonder Years, and Dashboard Confessional, She‘s a Legend focuses heavily on lyrical content giving a personal feel to their emotionally-driven music. 

Scott Fugger of 36vultures writes, “Richmond, VA’s She’s a Legend have officially conquered the sophomore slump with the release of Room 434. These new songs show off the band’s matured sound, tackling a deeper subject matter while bringing in a sense of muted positivity {…} along with personal struggles of depression and mental health.

The songs were first hammered out by vocalist Alex McDilda before being brought to the band and expanded upon. ‘For me it was good to get all that stuff off my chest in a way that was safe. There’s a lot of ways to handle those kinds of situations when you’re taking antidepressants and sort of dealing with things that are negative {…} but then find the positive and see that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.'”

In the same way, She‘s a Legend is extremely excited to work with Syke as a Featured Local. Bassist Camden Cantwell stated, “Kids come to this genre of music because it’s a way to deal with the things going on in their lives. The tobacco industry targets those people and makes them think that music and smoking go hand in hand. Syke is showing people that you don’t need to use to be punk or emo or whatever, that the community itself is better support than tobacco will ever be.”
