Strength of songwriting and performance quickly takes the reigns over style and genre labels, for this engaging and addictively passionate new single by Chester Doom.
Deeply honest and conceptually relatable, Anxiety kicks into gear with a nostalgic rock sound and vocal peak that instantly tips its hat to the simpler era of Guns N’ Roses. However, the song’s riff-work, presence, energy, lyrics and melody all quickly rebrand things under a fresh light.
Chester Doom take things down a boldly revealing, poetic pathway, and everything from the live crash and pace of the drums to that looping, hypnotic guitar riff and the darkness of the hook works beautifully to represent that. As such, the song draws you in with increasing appeal, and continues to connect across almost four-minutes of fearlessly emotive, hard-hitting audio escapism.
Acting as a fine introduction to the band, Anxiety is refreshingly genuine, relevant, and devoted to the topic at hand – rather than to any need for flashy aspects or filler simply to grab attention. It’s a performative anthem from the outside, but its intentions run deep, and the music continues to hit with greater impact thanks to this fusion of qualities.
