Caretaker – Swallow – Single Review

Caretaker is a US electro-rock quintet who released the single Swallow – today.

Caretaker

Caretaker

There is a fiery furnace which soars across the room as Swallow (available on bandcamp) dips and dives around the room akin to a murmuration of Swifts as the sonics of Caretaker camouflage their direction of travel and just as the listener thinks they have a handle on what to expect to hear next – so the tightly compact unit swoops in unexpected direction.

A quintet of considerable ability and for those of us not in and around New York (USA) Caretaker makes a welcome entrance to our ears.

Those of sharper eye by image and by ear aurally will recognise Erin Pellat as the singer.

Graham The Empire – Nasty – Single Review

The US electro-rock trio Graham The Empire released their debut single Nasty on the 9th.

Graham The Empire

Graham The Empire

Nasty skitters out of the speakers in a unification of electro-dance and rock delivering a track that has the listener grinding their hips with the sleazy beat. The scratchy soundtrack serves to enhance to sense that this is a song to hear in hedonistic mood as the pulsing electro-drum compresses the music with the dirty guitar chords fizzing in the undergrowth as the tempting vocal whispers of the passions of the night.

Due to release their début EP in September, Graham The Empire produce music that you can expect to hear being chanted on the dance-floor in the next year or so.

Francobollo – Worried Times – Audio

The England based electro-rock quartet Francobollo are set to release the LP Long Live Life on the 14th of July.

Francobollo

Francobollo

Francobollo are unafraid to test themselves or the listener with their packed and ever different soundscapes, which may be progressive, psychedelic, angular or in the case of Worried Times from the forthcoming album, dance-floor. Though rest assured whatever they deliver is played with panache, style and ability with the knack of capturing and holding attention.

Bear With Us – Freedom Fighter – Single Review

The Swedish electro-rock band Bear With Us are planning on a series of singles over the coming few months.

Bear With Us

Bear With Us

The first to be revealed, Freedom Fighter, is highlighted by the piano that is given prominence in the just under four minutes track surrounded by tightly compacted bass and drum while the guitar fades in and out of earshot with interventions of wah-wah flamboyance as the confident vocal ties up any loose ends allowing Bear With Us to deliver a song wrapped in complexities of interplay that have an unexpected dance-step in which the audience is invited to join-in with the composition.

Bordertown – Wonderland – Audio

The Australian electro-rock quintet Bordertown release the LP Wonderland on the 1st of June.

Bordertown

Bordertown

Thunderous energy flies out of the speakers on hitting play on the title track (and first of the seven) on Wonderland which is all deftly herded in to order by the subtle synths which allow the quintet to deliver music which is both pumping bass / percussion combinations, glittering rock-riffs and arching vocal yet layered with a warming calmness that enables the melodic flows and depth of textures to shine more brightly.

Wonderland – Bordertown is available on iTunes.*
