RVIVR's 2013 full-length, The Beauty Between, is one of the strongest punk records in recent memory, an album that whisks the listener back two decades to a time when bands such as VA’s Avail and CA’s Face to Face were reconciling post-hardcore idealism with the search for the perfect hook. Like many of the best punk bands, this Olympia, WA, outfit—led by guitarist-singers Mattie Canino and Erica Freas, each a passion-spewing dynamo with a masterful grasp of melodic shout-and-shred—privileges emotion over dogma, capturing the tug-of-war between adolescent dreams and the scary adult world.
