Meg & Dia, “Roses”

A small indie-rock band formed by sisters Meg and Dia Frampton, this five-piece act known as Meg & Dia defies the rules of songwriting and writes of topics which mean the most to them – life, love, and literature. Their songs consist not only of heartbreak and the never-ending journey in life, but also religion, politics, and other topics of maturity beyond the ripe ages of 22 and 25. They first began their journey as Meg & Dia in 2004 and for the past 6 years, the passion, truth, and slight sarcasm still remains. Not only do their songs exemplify works of fine literature, such as classics ranging from East of Eden by John Steinbeck to Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, they have successfully expressed a wide knowledge of music, depending on their acoustic guitars, pianos, and a full live band with powerful riffs, melodies and a drum set to keep listeners asking for more. What makes this band particularly special is their fearlessness and bravery to say what’s on their minds, no matter how much of their hearts are on the line. The first time you listen to their hard rock, head-nodding anthems or their passionate and oftentimes vulnerable lullabies, you will realize how honest and true these small-town Utah girls are. Expressing an interest to merely write and play music in hopes of hitting you “here, here, and here (heart, mind, and ears)”, as one of their songs inspired by Mozart displays, this band has remained true to themselves for as long as they’ve been able to hear. Although their music may take a little getting used to, these girls deserve the effort and a listen. And I mean a real listen. They truly have something to say.
