That meeting of the professional side of music making & the open, authentic side of being an artist has been really well captured. It’s a great song.
The rhythm & ongoing melody surround you quite hypnotically, closing you off to the noise of the outside world, making the experience about the here & now.
The raw energy of punk rock makes for an unexpected approach to Christmas music. A new concept, a fresh melody, an organic yet subtly heavy musicality.
The set-up fuses distorted guitars with classic keys & a vibrant drum line. The artist’s characterful leading voice delivers the sentiment with power.
The instrumentation is blissful to experience, unlike the average pop song in which it’s the melody that stays with you. The set-up is refreshingly unusual.
Keeps you intrigued throughout, right through to the finishing, chaotic moment that is Never Die. The vibrancy & energy exemplify life, living; rock & roll.
There’s far more involved here than a characterful presentation & style. The meanings run deep, the songs hit like reality knocking creatively at the door.
The indie-rock vibe is alive & kicking, yet Rhett’s voice rides alongside of it in a pop-meets-funk manner – something true to this artist’s sound alone.
Considerately crafted, as is generally the way with Strangely Alright. There’s always an element of fun, creativity, and some underlying depth or message.
There are equal parts colour, character, and depth throughout this project. It’s a bright & joyful collection but not without meaning & considerate ideas.
Jason Phillips has the tone & lungs required to really rock this sound. A live show would likely satisfy the Green Day or Blink fans who crave that energy.
The Söur Bruthers sound is stylish, energetic, soulful, and satisfying in the way that any great blues-rock or Americana soaked record should be.
