By the Way of the Devil is flat out weird, but it’s also genius. Pete Murphy has proven once again that his experimental and unapologetic artistry is truly one of a kind.
Colin Read has balanced warming pop-rock grooves with deeply reflective, endearing lyrics on this album – making for a collection that’s a joy to have play for you; both for its welcoming musicality & its unwavering realness & truth.
A nine-track exploration of indie-alt-pop fusion – an album that offers subtlety & chaos in unison, showcasing the band’s creative identity as colourful & free.
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.
The leading riff & melody are the sort that have you hanging on for dear life yet listening back at every opportunity. Strangely familiar & thrilling.
The depth & passion with which this was created is clear, everything takes into account these real feelings & experiences that drove the artist to compose.
