You get a notable sense of identity from the sound, and the voice seems inherently connected to the lyrics, so the whole thing just works in the way that you’d hope your favourite band’s music to – each time you return to it.
Independent rock music seems to have reached impeccable new heights throughout 2018, and Amber Creek’s Afterglow is categorically a part of that movement.
The song’s latter half builds up brilliantly, the energy multiples and sweeps you away in the process – making for that perfect musical escapism and providing the necessary energy levels to fill the room and motivate even the tiredest of listeners.
With the support of the band Stevie and the Snowflakes, who helped bring the idea to life, I Believe In Christmas is a pop-rock offering that introduces a refreshing and upbeat new sound this Christmas – whilst still reminding us of all the things we generally love about this time of year.
The song utilises its upbeat rhythm & brightness to reinforce the very sentiment that it’s all about dancing – it’s all about having fun, spending time with those you hold close. We could all use a reminder of those things once in a while.
Peter Senior gets set to kick off your Christmas this year with a fresh yet rightfully seasonal sounding single that’s easy to enjoy.
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.
Gratitude & good vibes are at the heart of the song, and the band’s arrangement & performance fortunately delivers this in the best possible way.
The relationship & the descriptive nature of the lyrics at the heart of the song shout out for positivity & hold close to a blissful view of the world. As a modern day love song, it’s refreshing – classic yet new, poetic & accessible, and surprisingly (refreshingly) upbeat – the perfect contemporary country single to be shared between lovers.
Alexis is a project that has been compiled with care and professionalism alike – you can hear this in the music, alongside of passion and positivity, every step of the way. Gerred has put so much of himself into the album, and it works.
It’s a raw sound, it sounds live – something you don’t get too much of these days. You can hear the band in real time, and the unity between the bass, the guitars, the melody, and the drums – a brilliant performance on the drums – is easy to get on board with.
The song brings together professional performance and production, creativity, passion, and a topic that’s increasingly finding itself at the forefront of modern life.
