Like Coheed and Cambria, Matchbook Romance is a band that is affiliated with the pop-punk emo scene but whose progressive rock looks beyond it. A fan of arty indie rockers Blonde Redhead (and, one guesses, Radiohead), singer-songwriter Andrew Jordan wraps swelling, sing-along choruses and metal guitar outbursts with hushed confessions, distended melodies, and enough Gothy menace to make Voices sting — without alienating the girls in heavy mascara.
