This new release from The Striped Bananas is a re-working of their first album from back in 2012, with a few new additions. There’s perhaps a more raw, classic progressive rock feel to this one than last year’s project.
Eclecticism is defiantly a part of this project, but even so – you get a feel for the progression, the voices, the style, the subject matter. The band have something that is their’s, and that’s exciting.
These poetic, reflective moments express a particular perspective that provokes thought. The accompanying music supports & enhances this sentiment superbly.
The leading vocal presents a sense of individuality & realness, the latter of which comes unexpectedly among what is a fairly psychedelic soundscape.
For the sheer creative energy, this is one to take on at full the volume. Cascading riffs, thoughtful lyrics – a stylishly expressive collection of songs.
The song takes advantage of the entire musical structure of songwriting, utilising each moment to imprint ideas & a certain mood onto those who hear it.
