An increasingly impressive band. The live show is undoubtedly where things would really connect, but in terms of seeking out that album or playlist within which you can immerse yourself and feel involved in something, perhaps even understood; this collection is everything you could hope for.
An emotional yet still cinematic journey, into which the leading singer pours soulful poetry – weaving around you a beautifully ambient blanket of warmth. This is a personal favourite from Glorybots to date, and an easy song to escape within.
The band’s sound is classic, not instrumentally groundbreaking but strong enough to impress and entertain. What gives them their edge though is the songs, the approach, the heart.
The members of Iron Core have an incredible talent to craft deceptively catchy rock tunes that, much like their inspirations, are just dripping with attitude and sex appeal, and are just a whole lot of fun.
My approach to creativity? I often go for a walk through Heidelberg, open my eyes, open my ears and just let my thoughts flow. At some point creativity kicks in. That gives me an idea. But then I need to play around with it – I prefer to do that on my own.
The energy of the track is sky high and the recording allows the band’s strengths to really stand tall and appeal to our inner party addicts.
The entire video is enthralling from start to finish – a joy to lose yourself within, and well-crafted to the point that you really feel no need to distinguish this from (or compare it to) the original or other versions.
Genre and stylistic labels aside for a moment, Jonni Lost drive with superb songwriting on this EP – Hang On is an immediately likable song that quickly grows to be an addictive and rather unforgettable track; with timeless qualities.
Creatively walking multiple lines between raw indie rock and dreamlike shoe-gaze or grunge, James Dean Death Machine presents a notably live sound on this album Leave a Pretty Corpse – inviting the listener to stand front and centre as this rain of bass-lines, beats and vocal grit pours down before them.
The days of colourful riffs and pop melodies infused with hearty rock and roll seemed all but gone in recent years. Enter Life As Mary – a band who brilliantly fuse indie rock rhythms and grit with immediately infectious, likable songwriting.
Rarely these days do we get to stumble upon deeply considerate, profound & clever poetry such as that found throughout this album. The lyricism comes reminiscent of centuries old literature & poetic writing. The band create these intense experiences that seem to lift you out of normality or the predictable noise of the modern world.
The band tick so many boxes when it comes to music as both freedom from turmoil and a blanket of understanding and acceptance.
