Troy Petty has evidently mastered being musically true to his own artistic and expressive needs, offering up an album of original songs that pour through with absolute creative freedom yet a clear passion for and connection to the very process of writing and performing.
Songs like Pale Blue are the sort that have been so meticulously and considerately crafted, that the track in full, and indeed repeated a fair few times afterwards, is where the real magic of the experience lies.
Whether you were once swept away on the raw rock passion of bands like Pearl Jam or Audioslave, or you’re simply a contemporary rock fan who craves that fine balance between melody & grit – the opening moments of Seventh Sea, and indeed the rest of the track as it entrancingly pours through, make for a quickly engaging, increasingly addictive audio experience.
The song offers an underlying sentiment that seems fairly inspiring and of depth – the poetic references intertwine with the inclusion of ‘you’, inviting the listener to consider these ideas, these instances of advice, and to feel the embrace of the music as its weight and intensity fills the room.
Love Ghost are fast becoming one of the most interesting and engaging rock bands to emerge during this re-igniting of the genre. Nothing speaks more in favour of that than this latest single.
Manchester’s Plato are quick to impress with this distinctly emotional and creatively fascinating new song. Showcasing a touch of influence from the likes of Half Moon Run, the band drive with uniquely interesting lyrics, organic and expressive musicianship, and stunning vocals.
Entering a Parallel Eruption paves its own way creatively, giving the band an alternative and optimistic edge that’s refreshingly freeing right now.
There’s a driving force about this that would let it suit the long road home as much as the early morning start – the calling card of a songwriter with strong audience awareness yet still a clear & concise sense of self identity.
Pietro Cottone tackles the world’s issues and his feelings towards them in an upfront and respectably honest way. These things affect us all, and this album is a stark yet great way to start the conversation.
The 3Mind Blight sound is quickly becoming a thing entirely of its own. Uncertainty reigns, but there’s a sense of possibility – a feeling that not knowing isn’t quite as bad as it sometimes seems. ‘It’ll be alright if I live a good life.’
They say it takes real life experience or struggle to write or create something that connects and refreshes contemporary minds – or any minds, for that matter. Patricians Come Down seem to drive with this sort of realness, injecting a hit of that organic, burban songwriting and expression into everything.
a truth called nothing are a collection of creatives who undoubtedly craft their tracks with a certain sense of freedom and a desire to simply express the inexpressible. Delicate moments are juxtaposed brilliantly by infectious, energizing hits of rhythm and weight.
