CORDONNIER: Most underrated albums of 2017

In their third studio album, Sorority Noise truly come into their own, distinguishing themselves from the plethora of emo bands singing about disillusionment and self-reflection. Dealing with themes such as depression, doubt and the death of a close one, lyricist and lead vocalist Cameron Boucher draws from personal experience to craft an intimate and personal journey, one that feels unique in its presentation. From the screaming frustration of "No Halo," to the pop-inspired denial of "Disappeared," to the utter heartbreak and confusion that is "Second Letter from St. Julien," Boucher and the rest of the band create a truly unparalleled listening experience, one vastly different from any other album this year. Despite its somber and heavy themes, the album still manages to remain somewhat hopeful; instead of dwelling on the sadness, the album finds heart and hope in heartbreak, something we all could use a little more of. Not only is it one hell of an underrated album, but it’s my favorite of the year.
