As A Lark

The Ypsilanti pop-punk band has honest lyrics and complex, driving riffs. The bassist basically solos the entirety of every song, and the high energy singer/guitarist has a unique voice – both melodically and lyrically. The themes of the songs include everyday life in Ypsilanti, sweet friendships, heartbreak, and the often direction-less, angsty yearnings of twenty-somethings in the twenty-first century. 

“I think modern punk has an overall positive message and emphasis on community and perseverance that I like. It seems like a raw, real art form, and that appeals to me, I guess,” said lead singer and guitarist Jordan Berry.

Their songs are layered, and while they are quite laborious to construct — integrating vocal and instrumental harmonies, and each band member’s input — their intricate sound proves that it is worth it in the end. 
“It's sort of exhausting and it takes us forever to do, but I think the final product is always something really interesting, and that's what I want to be above anything else,” Berry said.
