You get a sense that the band have been doing this for years, doing nothing but this – honing their skills, building a level of oneness, writing and performing with absolute emotion and purpose; the perfect contenders for a lasting and respectable role within modern music.
Everything from the narrative, to the music and vocals has been meticulously crafted to enhance the storytelling in an invigoratingly novel way. It’s a triumphant beginning and one that makes me excited for things to come.
