Like Eddie Vedder, Varnaline songwriter Anders Parker seems to idolize Neil Young for his twangy introspection; unlike Pearl Jam, he doesn’t weigh down his melancholy with exhibitionistic melodrama. Whether they’re flirting with a socialist agenda (”The Hammer Goes Down”) or confronting an existential crisis (”Dust”), on Man of Sin, Varnaline approach their subject matter with a quiet dignity that eludes most fellow twentysomethings.
