Happy I Can See Mountains Day
If you’re from Buffalo or have a deep appreciation for underground emo music, you more than likely know who I Can See Mountains is. If you don’t, then you’re probably wondering what I Can See Mountains Day is.
I Can See Mountains was a Buffalo band from the early 2010s who grew a decent following with their 2012 release Hope You Never Get It and their 2013 record Life on a Houseboat. The latter of which is highly recognized as one of the best unheard and underground records. The lyrics of the fourth track of the album, Snake Eater, is why many refer to September 1st as I Can See Mountains Day.
September 1st I’m laying face down in a pile of my words
September 3rd changed every aspect of my world
I think you get the point. Many were excited to see I Can See Mountains re-form in 2019 for a future release, but nothing has been said of late. For a band that has only played a show or two since their original break-up, it’s remarkable how the underground love for I Can See Mountains is still going strong.
I admit I was late to the I Can See Mountains appreciation train, but I totally get it. The band is a prominent and significant representation of a band that has everything but largely went unnoticed for whatever reason. That mystique of the group is what drives so many to flock to appreciation.
There’s something extremely enticing about sharing a record with people who aren’t from Buffalo or missed I Can See Mountains in the underground emo scene. “You never heard of I Can See Mountains?” an almost satisfactory question leading to the point of a record that should’ve catapulted a band to mainstream success. The world works in mysterious ways they say. Happy I Can See Mountains Day.
