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.

Woman & Savages – Demonizer – Audio

The English electro-rock quartet Woman & Savages are working towards the release of their début EP – In The Nude.

Women & Savages

Women & Savages

Newly out of the blocks, there is but one song to hear. Demonizer (available on bandcamp) takes a sardonic look at racial, sectarian and sexual discrimination wrapped inside a pulsing bass drum / bass guitar that never lets go of the throbbing intensity, while synth delivers generous landscape from which guitars curl around each other in smokey hues, as vocal delivers the scathing context of the piece.

Woman & Savages deliver a confident début and are unafraid to take their time to unfold Demonizer, which lasts for five minutes and forty seconds allowing them to explore the reaches of the song and offer some complexity to the ideas, while having the songwriting, composition and delivery ability to not loose the audience through the track.

As regular readers know I am quite partial to bowed strings, so, it was with some delight towards the closing moments, they come to fore.

Adil Azhar, Gemma Newbury, Pedro Scalamandre and Deckard Smith-McMurphy are a quartet worth keeping a look out for in the future.
