Monument, from the forthcoming LP, combines powerful heavy-metal temperament with a light indie texturing which is all brought together by electronica that is able to smooth away any sharp edged welding of the ideas by giving the song an unanticipated calmness.
The US indie-rock band 408 released the EP Mrs. Lemonsqueezer earlier this month.
Akin to the release title, on hitting play the listener is coated in a zingy shower of sound, as 408 deliver their tracks in which the listener finds the need to be moving alongside with the zippy drum-kit as guitars buzz through the ears.
By way of an introduction – the first of the four tracks – Charlotte.
Currently working towards the release of a new LP – Say You Will Again has surfaced in advance.
With a fresh-faced outer-coating, within the just under three and two thirds minutes track the quartet do expose some fraying threads, which give them far more to offer than immediate impressions would suggest.
The US indie-rock trio Pet Symmetry release the LP Vision on the 26th of May.
Formed as a way to let off some steam in 2013 Pet Symmetry quickly discovered they were pretty good at their fun hobby and started to craft well put together tracks, building themselves a solid fan-base and fun-filled live performances.
Despite their skill and loyal audience, they have never lost their sense that this is something to enjoy with tracks that resonate of good humour, sometimes self-deprecating, othertimes more general wit and joie de vivre.
Stare Collection is the second of the eleven tracks on Vision.
It was back in 2014 that the US indie-rock band CLIFFHANGER last featured.
CLIFFHANGER – Barbed Wire Bat – artwork
On the 24th CLIFFHANGER released Barbed Wire Bat (available on bandcamp) and immediately on hitting play I recalled precisely what I enjoy about their music.
Just under three and a quarter minutes of sparkling effervescent sunlight pours in to the room, catching hold of the listeners on its way past the ears and launching them in to frenetic dance-step with a joyful grin on their face.
I hope it isn’t yet another lengthy before I return back to CLIFFHANGER who are able to deliver music of delighted high-tempo abandon without ever loosing timing and direction.
