Song Of The Week: 6/4/17
Artist: One If By Land
Album: "In The Fire Of My Youth"
Place Of Origin: Meadville, Pennsylvania
Years Active: 2011 - present
WHAT I THINK THE SONG IS ABOUT:
"Airtight" appears to be a song about trying to escape your mundane life and your mundane job and your mundane surroundings. You get a sense that the vocalist has ambitions and goals and in order to achieve them, he has to get out of his current situation. His current situation is holding him back and keeping him down and he has to break away from it in order to allow himself to grow.

CURRENT STATUS OF ONE IF BY LAND:
One If By Land formed as a band back in 2011, hailing from Meadville, Pennsylvania. Early on in the band's career, One If By Land received support from fellow Pennysylvania punk band, Anti-Flag. In fact, Anti-Flag asked One If By Land to appear on a split single with them in 2014. One If By Land's debut full length album dropped in 2013 called "In The Fire Of My Youth". Some three years later in 2016, the band released their most recent album, "Nobody Wants To Leave". One If By Land is an indie punk band that mixes gravelly vocals over melodic rhythms. If you're a fan of bands such as Red City Radio, Off With Their Heads, Samiam, Run Forever or Nightmares For A Week then you would most likely enjoy the music of One If By Land. This is a band that definitely has some potential if they can keep it together in a day and age where it's difficult to keep a band intact for very long.
