Everyone Asked About You - "Sometimes Memory Fails Me Sometimes"

Little Rock, Arkansas' Everyone Asked About You are described as a "queer tweemo band." The band formed in 1996 and broke up in 2000, releasing less than two thousand copies of their entire recorded output. Their legend has grown in the last twenty plus years, and they're finally getting their music re-released. 

The first song released to re-introduce Everyone Asked About You (or introduce in many cases) is "Sometimes Memory Fails Me Sometimes," and if you have a fondness for late 90's emo, this is going to be gold to you. This fits perfectly with the melodic slice of indie rock that was labelled emo, after the initial burst of emo's aggression or the pure pop it became after 2000. This is perfect for fans of The Promise Ring or Rainer Maria. "Sometimes Memory Fails Me Sometimes" has that awkward beauty and left of center pop hooks that you're going to adore.

You can watch the video for "Sometimes Memory Fails Me Sometimes" below. Paper Airplanes, Paper Hearts, which contains the entire recorded works of Everyone Asked About You, is due out September 8 via Numero Group, and is available for pre-order here.
