Lesser Men has kicked off the new year the right way with their video for "Wave Walker" off of their Drifter EP, which I reviewed last month. The pure accessibility and raw energy behind the band's sound is idiosyncratic in todays scene, and honestly a breath of fresh air. Those qualities translated exceptionally into the video for "Wave Walker", and the future continues to look bright for the New England, melodic, post-hardcore outfit. The only qualm I had, or reason I held my review to 4 stars as opposed to 5 was that I usually look for strong secondary shots to prevent my digital-aged mind from wandering. And for me personally, the scenic nature shots just weren't quite enough. Still 5 stars from myself are rare and this fantastic video earned all 4 stars that were designated in this review. With a stunning new EP and video, 2014 assures to be a monumental year for the guys. You can check them out on Facebook, get yourself a copy of "Drifter", and keep up with the band.
