Lounge Act Jam return with an indie-rock-infused, grunge-soaked yet rhythmically uplifting new single – the lyrically minimalist but conceptually quick to the point When The River Flows.
Creep deals partly with what the title promises, though topics vary to keep things interesting, and it delivers consistently with this familiar Nirvana-style set-up and the unmistakable yet ever-unexpected innocence of that leading vocal tone.
Kicking off with the explosive blues-rock swagger of Killing Heroes, Initial Mass leave their mark pretty quickly on this latest album, fusing the raw rock energy of bands like The Black Keys with a more traditional, performance-based rock hook and rise-up to it.
Microcosms stylishly tumble through the speakers for this single, showcasing chaotic indie rock riffs and a grunge-like leading voice that sees the track slowly but surely gather strength and momentum as it fills the room.
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.
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.
Things get incredibly dark, really reinforcing the essence of the song far more than staying focused on the comedy aspect – there’s a reason the band have made this, there are genuine concerns and issues at its core.
The artist Abe breaks away from the mundane rhetoric of modern life with a brand new, three-track EP – intensely fusing hard-rock and grunge with a reflective, honest style of songwriting.
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.
Sons Of Silver present stunning rock vocals and a seductive blues-rock groove on this latest single. Never Enough is easy to love, a smooth track with a slightly eighties-style hook melody but a gritty and crisp instrumental set-up that lets the live-vibe shine through.
Fresh from the EP Changes, Light On is a song that starts off on a strong foot and continues to grow and engage you further as it progresses.
There’s been a notably squeaky clean finish to much of the mainstream world’s indie-rock offerings in recent years. The grit and uninhibited passion of times past seemed to be lost in the haze a little – enter the aptly named Hazy Days, with their raucous and unquestionably real rock sound; the sort that makes the classic and contemporary fans alike crave a live show from the moment those drums come crashing into the room.
