Necrolust, I'm glad you identified it as emo. In terms of melody, the timing of the vocals, and the whole quality that it evokes, it is thoroughly emo.
This really is hipster friendly music. It's stripped of everything aggressive and adventurous in spirit. Instead it's a just an endless whine.
Also, they don't exactly live "in the woods". They live a five minute walk away from Evergreen University in Olympia Washington. It's not exactly raw wilderness.
