The Burying Kind is a two-man band from outside of Chicago that consists of Scott-David Allen (A Covenant of Thorns), and Dan Milligan (The Joy Thieves/Drownbeat). The band combines aspects of dream-pop, darkwave, and new wave with more traditional guitar-driven alternative and pop rock.  

The shimmering guitars, and ambient atmospheres may remind some of bands such as Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine, The Sundays, and Cocteau Twins; but TBK's tight song arrangements, walls of fuzz-laden guitars, memorable vocal melodies, and lush vocal harmonies are much more akin to pop-rock bands such as The Posies, Tears For Fears, and Toad The Wet Sprocket. The result is a surprisingly modern sound that is drawing comparisons to bands like The National, Drab Majesty, Choir Boy, White Rabbit, and Editors.  

Deeply layered, but still powerful. 
Beautifully textured, but driving. 
Darkly romantic. And eternally hopeful. 

The Burying Kind.
