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.
The structure & the long-form melody of the verses connects intensely. The lyrics are great, the song has a concept & an idea that it sticks to throughout. As the music builds, the entire band work hard to reach this united height of passion & power.
Monkey Mind are a band who showcase a creative fusion of classic, progressive rock & something a little more nu-metal-inspired. Their self-titled EP drives with impressive musicianship & cleverly contrasted performances that hold tight to your interest & allow heavy hook sections to hit with impact.
A huge effort from Through Infinity, crossing borders between genres but always driving with heart & thoughtful songwriting. There are more than a few stand out riffs & moments within the piece to keep listeners coming back for more.
Even having heard the project in full, there’s a lot left to the imagination – there are still many questions about the meanings of these songs & the feelings involved in the creative process; as was often the case with genuine grunge & alternative rock music.
Not since the days of Incubus & System Of a Down has a band taken to such unpredictable, deeper than deep, observational & reflective songwriting, particularly not alongside of such entrancing & skillful musicianship.
A totally memorable song that cleverly narrates the potentially negative effects of certain types of music on human behavior & even intelligence. The whole attitude & approach of the track seems perfectly catered to that concept.
Expect rock & roll, jazz, soul, indie, blues, meandering instrumentals & deeply provocative or hilariously quirky lyrical observations. Press play at the start of the party, or wait until everyone’s gone home – in either case, the music has your back.
Whatever your expectations may be when delving into a new project from a solo artist, the detail & depth of this will blow them out of the water.
The song takes advantage of the entire musical structure of songwriting, utilising each moment to imprint ideas & a certain mood onto those who hear it.
There’s a realness to the songs, half of which makes your thoughts wonder, half of which gives a rush of adrenaline & subsequently calms you to your core.
