Unhurriedly drifting through the room milkd deliver music which invites the listener to lay back on a soft blanket and allow the music to wind away the stresses of the day as the reverberating echo of guitar, softly brushed vocal and warming keys cosset the ears.

Shambolics – Chasing A Disaster – Single Review

The Scottish rock’n’roll quartet, Shambolics, released the single Chasing A Disaster on the 5th.

Shambolics - Chasing A Disaster

Shambolics

Transporting the listener from the Eastern coast of Scotland to the South Western coast of the USA in Chasing A Disaster; Shambolics take the listener to a Californian retro-surf ride.

A bleeding guitar slips out of the speakers to the accompaniment of a ferris-wheel percussion as the pulsing bass rotates through the ears while a laid-back vocal shimmers, akin to a brightly sunlight cloud floating high in the sky, leaving the listener pondering of time on the beach on a warm summers day.

There is nothing to do other than skim out to sea, to catch the coasters.

Chasing a Disaster – Shambolics is available on iTunes.*

The Rotations

Extracting Gold From Fleas has a primordial beat that takes the listener on to a chanting fireside dance with the music seeping its way deep in to the marrow of the bones as it laments of a world turned sour by selfish greed.

Motion

Motion

The air fills with a palpable sense of sadness as the music floats through the air on extended glittering delayed guitar notes with a double time percussion giving the feeling of two platelets moving at different speeds revolving around each other, which gives the songs their shadowy texture, through which bass fades in and out of earshot while a sorrowful echoing vocal rounds out the immersive sounds created by Motion.

Myths is the first of the four tracks.

Kung Fu Jesus

Immediately on hitting play the listener is wound back to the late ’80s – though not in the least sorry for it – as the blends of instrumentation, electronica and floating vocal surface in to the room to wrap the listener in billowing down filled blankets.

The third of the ten tracks is Shine A Light.
