Funeral Advantage, “Please Help Me”

Sophie Kemp

by Tim Oxton

For all of its sun soaked and carefree reverb, Please Help Me, the most recent EP from Boston’s Funeral Advantage comes from a dark place. The album came into being during a point in frontman Tyler Kershaw’s life where he constantly felt unsafe and defenseless. Please Help Me is a glimpse into that feeling of hopelessness, that feeling of needing support through family and friends.

The six track EP tells Kershaw’s story by weaving in arcing lines of jangly shoegaze guitars. It’s a piece of music that feels nostalgic anyway you spin it, sounding like something you’d hear in your car when winter turns to spring. Kershaw proves himself a pro at weaving elements of the personal into a cabinet of curiosities worth of delicate pop gems. Please Help Me is a dreamy and meditative trip to hell and back.

2/28 – Brooklyn, NY @ Saint Vitus
