As per the band’s consistently classic yet unpredictable edge, there’s a strong sense of sixties psychedelic rock influence, and this smashes into view each time the hook strikes.
Utilizing creative freedom yet again, offering an alternative pop-rock anthem with a quiet verse vocal that intrigues from the offset, Reigning Nonsense is as multi-layered and colourful as it is conceptually intentional.
This EP is insane – every song is an epic anthem of classic rock, but it’s also never quite as you’d expect. Strangely Alright aren’t afraid to fill the moment with creativity & unpredictable instrumentation. A brilliantly well presented, uplifting collection that marks a huge moment in the band’s journey.
The song itself is precisely what you might expect, story-wise – little Billy is a little boy, and what happens to him is about as heart breaking as can be. From a musical perspective though, this single is far from predictable.
Considerately crafted, as is generally the way with Strangely Alright. There’s always an element of fun, creativity, and some underlying depth or message.
It’s a beautiful song, a little retro, rhythmic, hopeful, enjoyable in itself, but also – it’s inspiring, when you really break it down & pay attention.
There’s all but a feature length film to fill you with thoughts & self reflection. The energy is superb & maximises the strength of the song brilliantly.
