Beautiful Remorse is the hot new band on the scene, releasing one track a day for ten days straight. Each track has a mysterious name and a strangely powerful effect on the band’s fans.
A curious music blogger decides to investigate the phenomenon up close by following Beautiful Remorse on tour across Texas and Kansas, realizing along the way that the band’s lead singer, is hiding an incredible, impossible secret.
Here’s the thing about Your Favorite Band Cannot Save You: it is bizarre and creepy and incredibly subversive, which are all amazing things as far as I’m concerned, but there’s one small problem. It makes it really difficult to review without spoiling anything. That’s not a complaint by any means, but I wanted to be up-front with why this review will be so short and vague.
Given that it’s a novella (and an incredibly quick read, even for its length), and that the action starts up pretty fast and never really lets up, the best thing you can do is go into this knowing as little as possible about the events that will unfold.
All I’m going to say is that it was fun, weirdly hilarious at times, a little campy, and I loved it a lot and definitely need to read more from this author in the future.
Thank you so much to Tor.com for providing me with this ARC in exchange for an honest review!
