Archetypesfeatures a heavy modern rock/post-hardcore sound, ranging from thoughtful guitar parts to catchy choruses and hard-hitting breakdowns. PureVolume.com praised “The Self” in its feature of the song: “As you travel through the song’s mesmerizing guitars, banging percussion, and metal-heavy vocals, you’ll be hit with the odd sensation that you’re standing still while the music rushes past you. It’s an interesting phenomena, and one that will have you coming back for multiple spins.”

More about Reactions:
By covering their faces, band members Joseph Cook, Otis Loken, Tom Wright, Tony Azevedo and Kane Cooper give up the individualized attention typically desired by musicians. The act is done in an attempt to create a community of people brought together not by a shared interest in the latest trend, but by the love for music.
Reactions was formed from members of Arizona pop-rock band Sound The City, Minnesota hardcore band Of Salt & Swine and Arizona rock band RadioDriveBy. The combination of these members triggered a profound change in musical direction.
The band’s debut EP, Under My Skin, was produced by Dan Parker (A Change of Pace, The Summer Set, Hello Hollywood), and exhibits listener-friendly rock ‘n’ roll and infectiously laced pop, mixed with the hard hitting components of post-hardcore.
Starting 2012 with a fire, Reactions released their sophomore EP, For What It’s Worth, produced by Curtis Douglas (The Maine, Blessthefall, This Century). From the EP’s more defined post-hardcore sound to its softer ballads, For What It’s Worth certainly lives up to its namesake.
