Ties that Bind
Mainframe is a four-piece punk rock band bound together in the pursuit of what’s right. Members Noah (vox, guitar), Naomi (bass), Drew (drums), and Rachel (guitar, BGVs) met up in the Far East, where they decided to join up, plug in, and send a shout out to the world.
“Ties that Bind” is the band’s third melodic new school set list, busting out with more of the sincere energy you heard on the self-titled and “Burn the Boats” EPs. Mainframe likes it loud and edgy, and this EP was driven by an undeniable yearning.
There are two themes that jump out in these songs: First, helping each other up and along. Friends and relatives gotta be there for each other and press on together. Second, a longing for deeper insight into God’s truth. We can see something of Him in the beautiful things around us, yet we need God to open our eyes to see Him more fully.
The final two tracks showcase the “unplugged” side of Mainframe. I guess this is what the band would sound like on an acoustic stage!
