Dear You is more than a personal letterhead. Theyâ€™re a straight-edge rock band from Texas, tweeting their hearts out and impaling themselves on their instruments.
What I like most about them is how legit they are. Not only in their performance, but in their lyrical content. They donâ€™t put on airs or inflate their egos, but allow themselves to be accessible, relatable. Whether theyâ€™re making killer covers (check out their rendition of Raise Your Glass to see what I mean) or spouting off original compositions, theyâ€™re emotionally charged but still tons of fun.
When you watch their videos, you can see that they love what they do. There are no vibes of tension, competition or foolish pride. They are down to earth and full of nothing but awesome.
I must admit Iâ€™m acutely attuned to their break-up anthem The Way That You Left Me. They play it safe but do it well.
