It’s one of those rare records that not only helps you understand life more by capturing all its highs and lows, but also makes it better. Stunning stuff.

Despite the record’s hefty concerns and classic “harder, better, faster, stronger” second-LP upgrades, Fiddlehead’s defining quality is their modesty.

between the richness is an aggressive and energetic emo album. while the vocals may be grating to some, i feel like they really add to the emotion of this album. this album is just insanely exciting. its always packed with energy. the lead guitarist of this band is also in basement, who are one of my favorite bands. this is definitely very reminiscent of basement but you can hear influences from many different bands such as the brave little abacus, title fight, citizen, and more.

FAVORITE TRACK: Heart to Heart

LEAST FAVORITE TRACK: Grief Motif

FIDLAR, Fiddlehead, Radiohead... bitch get new names....

Damn this a nice burst of energy, a shot to the arm after some disappointing releases from Cloud Nothings and other upbeat emo/rock bands.

All in all though not a disappointing year for emo adjacent energetic punk-rock so far at all and this will go nicely with the new Teenage Wrist/Glitterer/Du Blonde & Parannoul.

Now just hoping for a decent AFI album 🤞

Might check out the new Origami Angel album now 😎

um lançamento mto bem produzido pra falar a verdade, não é inovador nem nada realmente, mas pra quem gosta de emocore eu recomendo este álbum.

Fiddlehead really steps into the indie-core sound on "Between the Richness' by successfully exploring the difficult journey of aging, and watching those close to you transform or leave. A matured album with solid guitar work, nothing flashy at first, but once composed make for a triumphant display.
