The originality of the project has a definite series of threads that keep things relevant, though at no point can you get complacent. The band are doing their own thing and doing it well.
As an artist, MARKK offers up a notably characterful voice & performance style. This sort of RnB-influenced melody is not often presented by what appears as a fairly indie-rock-like leading voice, there’s a lot of grit & passion to the sound.
Faceless Orphans’ punk-meets-indie-rock explosion presents an album loaded with energy and grit, as well as a surprisingly satisfying & heartfelt array of songwriting.
Countdown To Sunset is an artist who deals with a number of human emotions in a way that lays bare the truth of each thought or feeling – highlighting, in an authentically pure manner, the imperfections that make up a life.
You’re likely to find these tracks popping back up in your mind repeatedly for the foreseeable future – the peacefulness of a subtle, gentle ear worm is far more enjoyable than that which forces its way into your consciousness. These are brilliant songs.
The project has a distinct thread throughout that keeps things familiar, though every song brings something unpredictable & quite special to the stage. It’s an interesting collection that really presents a distinct stamp of identity.
Flawlessly combining the retro vibes of the 80s with the absolute ear-wormery of modern pop, Perfect Chair is a track you only need to hear once for it to leave its mark. A huge song, immediately satisfying & enjoyable from start to finish.
It’s always interesting when you come across a musical composition that seems to, in its own artistic way, represent its concept by means of every element involved. The song underlines a sense of emotional disconnect with every fibre of its being.
The sort of release that reminds you of the power of the album, the strength of a collection under a particular light – the experience is much more mighty when taken on in its entirety, as intended.
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.
