A self-described pysch punk band, the Cleveland group Language — Jordan King (guitar, vocals), Maureen Joyce (drums, vocals) and Austin Kaufman (bass, vocals) — formed during the pandemic's early days.

"But beneath the grit of these nine songs, Language demonstrates a love for melody, head-bobbing grooves, and hope for the future—at least as far as rock 'n' roll in Cleveland is concerned.
