The various vocal sections add further to the passion & creativity – the intensity & pace increases, the song starts to hit harder. The final moments are huge, a backing choir and a kicked up beat create beautiful chaos behind the artist’s soulfully meandering voice.
A brilliant rhythm section provides a unique & impressive backbone throughout this instrumental journey. Their music is something of a free-flowing, spontaneous expression of emotions – presented in unity & with an ongoing sense of style & togetherness.
The band offer a thick, punk-pop level of boldness and energy, but they contrast this with delicate, difficult subject matters – a fine balance that you don’t find all too often in modern music.
There’s an underlying, slightly tribal feel to the beat – then you get the vocal rhythm & the sheer passion in Dutty’s voice, the soulful melodic tones of the feature, and some superb electric guitar hits that fill up the outer edges. Originality runs free but it’s also kept relevant by clear threads of ability, truth & professionalism.
Holly Zell has something quite special & currently very unique about her writing & her musical approach in general, not to mention an unstoppable, ever-impressive singing voice. So many stages await this kind of talent & genuine love for performance.
Inches From Sin write and perform from the heart, so regardless of genre, it’s a song that connects in a natural, believable way. Furthermore, though the topic is clearly personal & unique in story-line to the songwriters, it’s presented here in a somewhat vague, widely accessible manner.
This album has the power to take you somewhere else for a while – maybe to the lake-side motorcycle festival, or the depths of the West country for an all nighter at the bar with some live bands. It’s a mighty collection & would make for a fitting, refreshing gift for those who’ve almost lost faith in the future of classic blues rock & roll.
Lil Tomahawk offers a laid back approach to modern hip hop, fusing rap and melody in a carefree way that suits the simple echo and loop of the musical backdrop pretty well.
The band seem to be capable of any kind of live show, the performances and the details, the unity between all involved – incredibly impressive no matter the pace or the style of the song.
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.
Things vary throughout, keeping you interested & creating something genuinely artistic & dramatic before you. It’s an interesting album in a number of ways, but it’s also quite easy to simply let play – a well suited project for those late nights that seem to never end.
Beautiful chaos.. the band succeed entirely in winning you over. For a mere two-track EP, Hectic is an intense & unforgettable playlist of pure musical power. saajtak is a name worth looking out for.
