What makes the move particularly notable is the discord between the Hush Sound's quirky jazz-pop aesthetic and their more emo-centric labelmates. Since signing to Decaydance, the Chicago-based band has toured with pop-punk staples Panic! at the Disco, Hellogoodbye and Jack's Mannequin, among others. Hush's lead guitarist Bob Morris tells Spinner, "I guess our band has a bit of a different vibe than most of the other bands there, but I think we all celebrate our differences."
While the band may have already attained an emo endorsement, they are continuing to look backwards through America's musical history to explore new sounds. "Americans can be ashamed of our country for a variety of political reasons, but we live in a phenomenal place musically," vocalist/pianist Greta Salpeter says. "America has such a rich cultural history, and I love listening to the classics."
Morris sums up the band's philosophy with one simple phrase: "Good music is good music."
