The sixth of the nine tracks – Clouded Minds – demonstrates their influences steeped in ’70s heavy-metal to which they add flourishes of Scandi-rock, resulting in an almost five minutes song full of melody and aural metaphysics.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf – Tin Men – Single Review

The Belgian melancholic-rock quintet The Girl Who Cried Wolf revealed their latest single Tin Men on the 20th.

The Girl Who Cried Wolf

Even on a very sunny day Tin Men would cast a shadow over the sun as the intoxicating registry of darkness cloaks the listener in hypnotic layers of synth and guitar with scattered percussion glimpsed through the room as the seductive vocal entices the listener closer to the speakers.

There are rumours that The Girl Who Cried Wolf are planning to release an LP next year, with Tin Men pencilled in as being part of the album. The only sadness is that is now only April, so until more is uncovered Tin Men will have to serve as a taster to what is in store.

Montufar – Ghosts – Single Review

Montufar is a relatively new gazewave project from the USA.

Centred around Victor Montufar with additional instrumentation added as and where needed. With only a couple of tracks around, I look forward to hearing more. The most recent reveal being Ghosts, that was released on the 21st (available on bandcamp).

There is a palpable sadness that drifts across the room as the combinations of synths, piano and guitar, unhurriedly, weave around each other in a graceful flow of hazy texturing whilst the dual vocals provides Ghosts with its haunting presence as the percussion provides an unexpected, though delicious, pulse to the composition.

Sometimes working alone, other-times in collaboration with others, the latest track to surface which came out on the 21st – Homicide – was produced by Kush2x.

An acoustic and harp led track that fascinates from the outset with the unexpected instrumentation and melody that flows through a song.
