Marion, IN trio We Love You's previous releases combined hardcore punk's unwieldy energy with the measured potency of true Midwestern emo – at its core, this was an indie-rock project shouting over its own shaky disposition. 'My Emperor, I've Failed You' eschews the band's comfort zones for something a galaxy away could only compose, like the four-on-the-floor space-pop stomp of "Lovestruck Cat Face" or the slow climb of "The Arwing Might Not Make It." It's clear this EP is still the product of the same members, but the kinetics burn brightest with its atmospheres, not its emotions.
