Released on Proximity, this talented group of musicians do Taking Back Sunday plenty justice. The vocals from Saint Slumber are impeccable, harmonizing perfectly for an aesthetically pleasing cover of the famed rock band’s original.

Saint Slumber is on the rise and Modern Machines is coming off headline shows at Marquee NYC, E11EVEN Miami, and more, so expect this one to climb the ranks.
