Building the State is a hardworking band of dudes primarily from Gainseville, Florida. Their sound is challenging and artistic that muses anthem vocals yelling from far behind the mic with plucking reverbed guitars. This band is starkly similar to Explosions in the Sky...only with vocals here and there. Unable to be signed by a label so far, the band decided to take a break and work off some debt after releasing their most recent EP, "Faces in the Architecture" in the spring of 2007. With horns and experimental waves grazing their creation, the band creates an ambience that mirrors the likes of The Appleseed Cast and Sunny Day Real Estate.
