Flyleaf is a band out of Belton, Texas that formed in 2000. Flyleaf's music is Loud and Heavy rock with pained lyrics, while other rockers are singing about their broken homes and broken hearts, Flyleaf is confronting past traumas to heal old scars and prove in the process that hope shines brighter than despair.
Flyleaf's self-titled debut album echoes with songs about abuse, neglect, addiction, and dysfunction, and messages about overcoming adversity. And the band's wide array of brooding beats, atmospheric textures and lunging riffs compliment Mosley's emotionally revealing lyrics, which range from breathy and beautiful to scathing and aggressive!
"I'm So Sick," starts with a moody bass line throbbing over a haunting ethereal vocal before guitars crash in like a rock through a plate-glass window. The track see-saws between rage and reflection, guitarists Sameer Bhattacharya and Jared Hartmann providing textural flourishes and atmospheric touches that bridge the emotional shifts. "Cassie" layers stop-start guitars atop an urgent backbeat and builds to an exultant chorus. "All Around You" augments a wall of power chords with evocative jazzy licks and "Fully Alive" is a cinematic number with angry muted riffs that segue into another glorious refrain.
From the Band:
"We think about where we started and where we are and realize, 'Wow, we are playing in front of 1000 people tonight.' And then we just can't be thankful enough to those bands who gave us a chance to play with them, even though we are sort of nobodies."
Just incase you all are wondering Flyleaf has their defintion of Flyleaf:
"A flyleaf is the blank page at the front of a book," explains Mosley. "It's the dedication page, the place you write a message to someone you're giving a book to. And, that's kind of what our songs are: personal messages that provide a few moments of clarity before the story begins."
