Sybris’ sophomore LP, Into the Woods, pulls you in and never lets you down. Its dynamic songs and interesting tempo changes make this a very likeable album.

The album begins slow and quiet with its intro, "The Beach," only to quickly transition to more upbeat and head-bobbing songs. "Oh Man!" is probably the best track on the album with its catchy rhythm and lyrics. "Hot metal’s hot when you touch it/ Got nothing but bullets in my pocket/ Oh God I want some heat," the lyrics say. Another one you’ll find yourself trying to sing along to without even knowing the words is "Burnout Babies."

The album shifts between mostly fast-paced songs and some more mellow songs that, despite the overall upbeat sound of the album, are intriguing. "Got Nothing" is the first track to slow the pace down a bit. The tempo and lyrics reflect the depths of Sybris’ songwriting. It says, "When I’ve got nothing/ and I’ve got it all the time/ and it runs through my veins."

Into the Woods is a fun album that rarely has a dull moment. While many of the songs have a similar sound, Sybris is able to pull it off and still make every track a good listen. A- | Alex Bates
