Andy Jordan & producer Benedict Gibbon have crafted an absolute dream with this latest single. The smooth seduction of that bass-line & Jordan’s softly soulful, raspy leading voice pave the way beautifully – laying out an organic & engaging foundation, upon which the song in full can stand tall & hit with unquestionable impact as it pours through.
What begins as a somewhat minimalist soundscape, soon evolves to become a notably cinematic, emotional journey – the sort with the potential to accompany a major scene in a movie.
The UK’s own The Firefly’s bring together great music and good hearts on this latest, upcoming album Only Us, Northern Lights. The 45 minute record makes for an uplifting journey, a playlist of bright tracks with connected ideas and stunning musicianship.
That exotic bounce when the full warmth of the music drops in works really well in building further on existing contrasts and giving the track an addictive burst of energy.
Alexis is a project that has been compiled with care and professionalism alike – you can hear this in the music, alongside of passion and positivity, every step of the way. Gerred has put so much of himself into the album, and it works.
The whole concept could either be deeply metaphorical or completely, sadly literal. This is metal of course, so perhaps both play a part in the truth. As a debut in particular, Trigger is a hard-hitting, expressive & really well crafted track.
This album is immense. Even if it were the work of a band, the sheer creative energy, passion & detail is enough to blow so many other rock acts out of the water right now.
The song itself promotes appreciation in a glorious way and this too adds to the heartfelt vibe of the whole moment. Stunning work, a pleasure to add to the playlist.
Those of us who remember the simple, spacious & observational artistry of the likes of The Streets & Audio Bullys, will respond to this single from Charlie Steel with a deep level of appreciation for its nostalgic, minimalist aura.
This album is all about the songwriting. The music varies so much – and that’s a great thing, you never get a chance to grow tired of anything. There are so many good hooks & the arrangement allows the quieter moments to stand as tall as the louder ones.
The backing vocals have a certain delicacy & this contrasts rather brilliantly with the volume & swagger of those electric guitar solos.
Guilting not only the guilty, but the ignorant; Intimidation Doll seeks to make domestic assault everyone’s business. With a song as well constructed, incredibly conceived & musically adept as this, PMKS have every chance to make that happen.
