San Francisco outfit The Living pull from a variety of sounds on their new self-titled album. Most noticeable is the sprawling progressive rock atmosphere and the powerful choruses that wouldn’t be out of place in an arena. New song “Deceiver” encompasses both of those things — after a listen or two, it’s hard to avoid having the melody stuck in your head. “This whole song was jammed out and we pretty much ...
