When the writing is genuine & thoughtful, and when the humanity of the performance is clear & captivating, all you really need is the song. That’s all you need with this release.
Amoeba Teen’s colourful blend of indie-rock & pop comes through with some uniquely interesting story telling on this latest release.
Birchwood are doing whatever it was that certain bands were doing a decade or two ago that made them really seem fresh & carefree – unaffected by the industry or the rules or the expectations.
A sure-fire contender for the rock playlist. The freshness gives you something new to embrace, the familiarity arouses a sense of nostalgia – both of which work beautifully together.
The music builds from something quite mellow into something that is much more emotionally loaded & passionate – complete with chaotic drums & a freely wandering guitar solo.
The imagery & concept are so simple, so relatable, yet this feels like a brand new scene – an alternate ending to your favourite film perhaps.
This concept of getting over it is so much easier said than done, so the set up of this song works brilliantly in representing the journey through dwelling & on into freedom.
The indie-rock essence is the ability to connect with regular people. The more you hear of this caterpillar analogy or metaphor, the more inspiring it is.
An easy choice for anyone looking for that pop-rock sound with a little something fresh & unusual. The music works its magic in the best possible way.
The music has a definite stamp of identity, the leading vocalist has the perfect rock-meets-EDM tone & performance style to deliver with weight.
The rhythm & ongoing melody surround you quite hypnotically, closing you off to the noise of the outside world, making the experience about the here & now.
The raw energy of punk rock makes for an unexpected approach to Christmas music. A new concept, a fresh melody, an organic yet subtly heavy musicality.
