From the state of Oklahoma come the Nashville coffee shop stylings of Antifany. Beginning in February of 2001 with only lead vocalist Amy Newsom and the renowned Dave Walker III at drums, they later added bassist Matt Sawyer and keyboardist Josh Tipton to strengthen an already impressive lineup. Previously releasing the all our fans are japanese except two EP and now with the Antifany EP the group has now started a brawl between record companies to add them to their rosters.
Beginning things is the eclectic "Ran Home" which sets the mood of a dark lit coffee hole in the wall where good jazz prevails over the bleak crowd." "Forever" kicks things into gear with a moody rising anthem about the love of Jesus, forever, while "July" beautifully adds piano for a worship song that actually has feeling and heart to it. "Antiphony," by its name, seems like it could be a delightful tease on the group's moniker but is a total opposition bringing a moody pulsation. "Yellow Fields" adds another rising ballad while "You" strips everything away. "There Is More" ends things is the most stylish of epic fashion.
To put things bluntly, music needs Antifany. An amazing vocalist with beautiful heart felt lyrics and a band that can easily switch from remarkable soaring melodies to feelings of bleak sadness; this is a group that has all the talent for the next step. Any fan, which most are, of Mazzy Star and Sixpence None The Richer, will fall in love with Antifany and follow them somewhere that music hasn't been in a long time.- Review date: 1/19/03, written by Blake Garris
