Indie,Folk,Rock and Alternative: Anberlin

Reformed in 2002 from a disbanded band, this alternative rock band from Florida reached its peak in 2008. One of their highest ranking songs is "Feel Good Drag". To me it sounds too Emo/Teenage punk rock.
The one song of theirs that I like is "The Unwinding Cable Car"

Its a song that anyone would instantly relate to. It begins with this nice tune on an acoustic guitar and the song picks up progressively. The vocals, by Stephen Christian are great, he is quiet a versatile singer. As for the lyrics, they speak for themselves, assuring the broken hearted.

"Emotive unstable you're like an unwinding cable car
Listening for voices, but it's the choices that make us who we are
Go your own way, even seasons have changed just burn those new leaves over
So self-absorbed you've seemed to ignore the prayers that have already come about"
 Another good song of theirs is "The Haunting"
