Florida’s David A pairs the organic tumble of drums with the distorted appeal of rock guitar as a catchy and imagery-thick Balustrade begins to paint a scene.
Featuring brilliantly catchy, satisfying blues-rock vocal progressions, resolving at the end of each line with a fall to that title, Balustrade features the natural grit and rhythm of blues rock, with superb vocals from a raspy and passionate leading artist.
As the song evolves, subtle dashes of further voice and instrumental weight help light up an otherwise minimalist arrangement, for an authentic and somewhat nostalgic listening journey.
The latter half features a touch of oriental instrumental play, and flickers of electric guitar solo intermittently, for a unique back and forth that lures you in all the more so.
Simple yet stylish, effective, with a home-made vibe that begs for you to witness it in a live setting, Balustrade showcases a band lost within the moment, and the result is a song that offers the same opportunity for its audience. Classic, timeless, and best experienced at volume.
