Suns Of Static

Blistering guitars burst into the room as Suns Of Static punch their way through the walls with pace and precision. A few years under their belt it is something of a surprise they are not far better known as their material is of top quality and they are doing all the right things, but such are the vagaries of the music industry.

The voluminous textures that Suns Of Static create give the listener plenty of spaces to explore as the players bounce off each other and like synchronised swimmers all seems to be in unison then suddenly a flash of inspirational leap raises the bar higher. The band delivers well structured material which whether they are in statement anthems or all out rock mode exudes an underlying thump to the ears.

A new LP came out just a few days ago – 24th May –  the eleven track – Rise – which is a magnificently crafted set of music that takes the brain through a mesmeric journey.

Robb Hill and Brave By Numbers

Delivering music both with a band and as a solo acoustic act there is much to garner with Robb Hill. Darkly rooted lyrics are matched by equally purple tinctures of sound as the material explores the anxious tautologies of life. The listener is greeted by music which immediately latches into the brain with its baleful mournfulness of passing ships in a lighthouse swept stormy channel.


The sounds of Robb Hill with or without Brave By Numbers is a soul exploring space in which to dwell as the music flows through the bloodstream in delivery that no matter how loud you turn the volume switch you just want it louder to become at one with the music.

This is an act that again, to me, demonstrates the vagaries of the music industry, as although there have been international tours, there is a sadly lacking cohesion betwixt media coverage and value to the world of music, hence you find Robb Hill and Brave By Numbers being written about here, when by rights this is music that should be far better exposed.

Given the two different vehicles which are Robb Hill – two tracks, one with Brave By Numbers the other without. You know by instinct it is the latter I find most homogeneity.

The Red Rails

The mix of bluesy rock that The Red Rails produces is a well trodden path, what marks them above the crowd for me is the combination of relevant guitar twirls and slanting bass which gives the trio an impressively powerful sound. Without ever trying to break a mould of the genre that has worked for decades The Red Rails are able to create something which does have a difference, whilst being instantly recognizable for what it is.

A tight sounding out-fit who shake things up with tracks which range from the big stage to misty twists The Red Rails are garnering a dedicated local following. A début ten track LP coming out on the 15th July – A Living Fiction – which is a decent tour of their ability to write effective melodic sounds that captures the essence of their out-put  is preceded by a single – On The Line – which is track two on the album.

Melody and energy emerge from the speakers on hitting play as Secret Broadcast harness their sounds to deliver well spaced and harmonised music that needs to be heard by a wider audience without delay. There is something almost timeless about the music which contains both an earthy connection and finesse as the out-fit provide music that is smartly delivered.

Secret Broadcast have the ability to create music which is both engaging, yet easy to listen to, giving them a potential audience across many genres and this they have achieved by concentrating on taking the time to develop the tracks with extensive use of melody, which builds in intensity as the songs progress. If would have been tempting to blare out the music, but by taking the volumes down a notch, they have been able to inject the compositions with emotional context, with which the listener is easily able to identify.

Their recently released thirteen track LP Filthy Souls (which is available on iTunes*) is well worth getting hold of.

Flights of fancy spiral their way around the room as the sounds of Steve Koserski tumble around the room like a light display. Tracks of what seem, on reading duration, interminable length quickly flow around the brain as the music mutates from phrase to phrase. The sounds are not unattainable, but they do challenge the listener to appreciate the themes. If you take the time, you will find yourself submerged in a weave of seeming conflict, which by the time it drops to the ears coalesces into a streaming consciousness.

Not for everyone’s palate, that is for sure, but I found myself lost in the extended tracks which flow in apparently unrelated chapters until reaching the finale, where the pieces meld together, the tale told sinks to a summation and the composition forms a sharp focus of thought.

Not for a five minute run out – as in the main you won’t even be half-way through the piece, Steve Koserski offers material which requires time to ingest and as he is in no hurry to reach the conclusion, there is plenty of space to lay a while.
