They say it takes real life experience or struggle to write or create something that connects and refreshes contemporary minds – or any minds, for that matter. Patricians Come Down seem to drive with this sort of realness, injecting a hit of that organic, burban songwriting and expression into everything.
Introducing a brilliantly effective balance between colourful, pop melodies and a raw-rock musical set-up, Too Much Saturn’s Blame Game is made even better thanks to superb and thoughtful songwriting.
The roar of heavy rock meets with the descending and somewhat manic progression of power-chords you might more commonly find in punk rock, and in among this you also get a really effective melody, and a series of riffs that meet the high energy and embrace of the drums beautifully.
Sons Of Silver present stunning rock vocals and a seductive blues-rock groove on this latest single. Never Enough is easy to love, a smooth track with a slightly eighties-style hook melody but a gritty and crisp instrumental set-up that lets the live-vibe shine through.
Festival stages across the globe call out for an act like this. Absolutely worth appreciating as summer 2019 swings into gear. Listen loud.
Keeping classic rock and roll alive and kicking in every possible way, KAATO pour through with insanely powerful and stylish vocals, infectious guitar riffs, well-placed distorted, manic drums, and – perhaps most importantly – immensely addictive, energizing songwriting.
a truth called nothing are a collection of creatives who undoubtedly craft their tracks with a certain sense of freedom and a desire to simply express the inexpressible. Delicate moments are juxtaposed brilliantly by infectious, energizing hits of rhythm and weight.
There’s a certain quality that occasionally emerges in a rock vocal where the artist genuinely and thoroughly submits to the performance – bidding farewell to concerns or audience reception, diving head-first into the moment and letting it guide the sound of their voice with whatever levels of passion and intensity the song in hand draws from them. This was the first thing to strike me about the sound of The Infection.
Finding September lead with intensely high energy levels on this EP release. The band offer pop sensibilities, memorable melodies, and a fast-paced, hard-hitting musicality that sky rockets their sound way further into punk than pop.
Rise becomes something much bigger than the band, and much bigger than the listener – it brings together all of us in a striking manner, and it speaks with both hard-truth and optimism in an ultimately uplifting manner.
Prior to the release of their long-awaited album, The Kelly Bell Band burst onto the 2019 scene with a brilliantly vibrant and beautifully upbeat blues-rock classic entitled Long Train.
The songwriting and the vocals across this project are out of this world. Jennifer Valdez seems born to do this in the way that so many of the greats were. This album is a testament to the future of rock, and to heartfelt artistry as a means for making real music that connects and hits with impact.
