The band set things up with style, progressing with endless levels of flair & ability. Their unity is on form, the music is ready & waiting to be that addictive little anthem that gets you geared up to take on the world with the best possible energy.
Emerging with something of a classic driving rock ballad vibe, Flame is a quickly addictive and familiar piece of music and writing, though with a notably poetic back-bone that lays out a series of detailed images and scenes that perfectly suit the emotion and energy of the music.
Fusing a beautifully warm and nostalgic rock soundscape, mildly Oasis-like in progression but with an Americana twang and a punk-pop vocal arrangement, Kings Of The Earth are quick to impress with this single.
Lost Paradise presents an indie-rock & slightly Brit-pop-inspired soundscape – cascading guitar riffs, a raw drum line, a boy-next-door vocal. Then you get the lyrics, and this long-form, consistently developing melody, which puts me in mind of Freddie Mercury.
We are talking impassioned vocals. We are talking some pretty meaty riffing on guitar. All wrapped up in some smart production, great songwriting and a healthy little shot of gently snarling punky attitude. But it’s got mood and heart, and tunes and thoughtful lyrics, too.
‘You’ll never get your hooks in me,’ sings Huff. That may be so, but these tunes have ensnared me from the outset. It’s mainly the obvious joy at their creation, and the opportunity to show off their wares that has got me so enthusiastic. Fantastic!
Modern rock and grunge meet with a far more classic rock aura and beautifully showcase a band built up of superb musicians with a clear love for what they do.
ITCH are a band you’re going to want to scratch again and again. Fearlessly inventive and full of vim and vigour, musical nous and style. Go for it!
Unscathed? I doubt it. We all get a little battered along the way. Here’s a grown-up collection of songs to dip into to accompany us on the ultimate journey…
If Fate Wants To Mess With Me is fantastic, a gritty and emotional piece of classic rock with an edge of blues-rock and a twist of grunge just occasionally.
A brilliant new release, a melodically addictive and energizing soundscape and performance, paying tribute to Skunk Anansie as much as classic driving anthems and even alternative blues rock and roll. The Merrin sound is something of its own right now.
Strap yourselves in, because So Sorry isn’t taking any prisoners! A relentless, powerful, guitar-driven behemoth that is taking no notice of any traffic regulations today, thank you.
