The intensity rises throughout, but it’s been carefully crafted – it doesn’t overwhelm, it intrigues; with detail, pauses, nature, poetry, and a hypnotic sense of repetition that lets you fall deeper and deeper under its spell.
Lukas Pawluk’s album High Seas introduces an eclectic range of collaborations & sees the artist wander creatively through various sub-genres of rock & metal – all the while leading with beautifully poetic, compelling songwriting. This is defiantly a collection worth revisiting again & again..
That vocal tone and the style of these songs offers a distinct thread throughout, mood-wise though there’s plenty of eclecticism at work, and for these reasons the album makes for a wonderful playlist to escape within. A mighty follow-up to last year’s release.
David Alpha does his own thing, without question – from the songwriting through the set-up to the performance – he creates without rules, and it works.
The song doesn’t seek to divide further or to exclude anyone, instead it speaks of similarities, and it talks of the negative impact of feeding the fire – resolving again with the idea of us heading towards a bleak future unless everyone takes steps towards something better.
Can’t See You Without Me is a totally unusual and subsequently fascinating song that sees Voltanas pour his honest perspective into the process in a raspy and sleepy fashion.
There’s an entire cast of characters at play under the Pete Murphy artist name. Always a genuine treat to be entertained and indeed amazed by.
The song progresses and evolves much like a short film – the intensity rises, the passion builds and subsequently explodes as the band reach their emotional peaks; united in this tightly packed moment of well-organised musical mayhem.
The Live Sessions is music for music’s sake, and if mainstream culture has made you forget what that sounds like, Torelli and the Fuse are here to remind you.
With explosive, soulful guitar solos, and that punk-signature humor laced in the lyrics – this is bound to be your new Noel jam. It becomes evident in every corner of this offering that PMKS is not some new ‘in the moment’ flavor of the week, but a seasoned & battle-hardened band offering licks & lyrics alike that contend with the rock gods of generations past.
Nature’s Child are likely to get you hooked to their sound pretty quickly if you were once in any way connected to the alternative rock bands of the nineties & early noughties. Think Brand New, Jimmy Eat World – the former in particular when it comes to this single.
Nothing ever goes quite the way you expect it to, and yet that quickly becomes one of their most enjoyable characteristics. Expect big things from these guys, both recording-wise & in the way of live shows.
