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.
The qualities are simply a fusion of absolute creativity, passionate expression, grit and emotion intertwined – the scene setting, the structure, the instrumentation; all of this stands tall on the Ekpyrosis EP.
Love lifts us up in often unpredictable ways, and this album is a testament to that honor. Undoubtedly one of the most eclectic and enjoyable releases of Imbred’s to date.
Impressive, enjoyable from start to finish. It’s so great to have music play that feels ‘Christmassy’ but that isn’t compiled of the same two-dozen songs we hear every year.
Pushing the shoegaze boat out far into the creative distance, sweetsoak immerse their sound in lashings of reverb for this latest single – presenting the melodic and rhythmic qualities of rock through a dreamlike wash of warmth and lightness.
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.
