impossibly good-looking emokid
. He is known most commonly as the frontman for Bright Eyes, but he has also fronted his later project Desaparecidos
This guy is a genius, often tagged as a wunderkind
(he started recording at 14) and channels his emotions into powerful lyrics emokidettes can relate to.
Actually, he is still sorta a kid. I went to a show of his when he was way younger and he was so tiny and kid-like it shocked me. I haven't seen him recently (he's gone too mainstream for my wallet) so hopefully he had finally hit puberty and start growing up.
If you like Bright Eyes, you will love Cursive
, front by a member of Conor's former band Commander Venus Tim Kasher. Similar music, except I prefer Cursive
One thing that sets Conor apart from other musicians is his amazing voice. His voice wavers when he sings. It reconnects people to memories of crying and painful emotions and whatnot so after a few painful notes, you will be real fucking depressed. Go to one of his shows and you can feel the depression rolling off the crowd. No moshing here, kiddos, just crying.
