BLESS. – Easy Lover – Single Review

The English alt-rock quintet BLESS. are, deservedly, developing a growing audience.

BLESS.

BLESS.

Coming out through official release later in the year is the single Easy Lover – and those for sharper eyes and ear who have been with the site for a few years will spot the similarity betwixt an article from 2010 about The Supernovas and you would not be wrong to draw reference as Bless. is drawn from the quartet plus keys provided by Kieran. Though I am given to believe that Dizzo is bowing out with health issues and I wish him all the best and my thanks to him for providing many years of pleasure to audiences across the globe.




With very different texture, afforded by the addition of keys, BLESS. deliver music which like a dark shadow appearing at the door, looms in to the room casting a darkening pall through the audience in which they rapidly quiet voices as the impressive parade of deeply resonating percussion / bass combinations are merged with the two guitars providing the depth of composition with the synths providing the entrancing colouration through which a duality of vocals drift in and out of harmonics delivering a track in Easy Lover that the listener only regrets that it lasts a mere three minutes and fifty seconds.

Shambolics – Love Collides – Single Review

The Scottish rock ‘n’ roll band Shambolics are due to release the single Love Collides next month.

Shambolics - Love Collides

Shambolics

The clarity of delivers gives Shambolics a snappy beat that the moment the sounds flow in to the room the listener finds themselves joining in with the joy of it all.

First looked at back in August of least year; in Love Collides, Shambolics, deliver similar zestiness that covers the listener in a refreshing tangy sharpness though have, in the three minutes and fifty seconds of the song, marginally softened the sound giving the piece a more rounded moulding within which they find themselves space to add a subtlety from which they are able to deliver a track layered in textures.

I was enthusiastic when they were first featured I am even more enamoured now and do suggest keeping an ear out for Shambolics: A band, if there is any justice in the music industry, you will hear much more of in the near future.

Best engaged with in bare feet Younger is a just over three and two thirds of a minutes track that sparks glowing embers as it gaily dances through the room and listeners find themselves looking for a fire around which to skip with the accompanying music.

I would have been able to surface with this article within an hour of release were it not for the fact that every time I sat down to type I just had to stand up again and dance with the jaunty acoustic guitar and bouncing vocal.

I could write more, which would only delay publication – as I feel the need to fleet my feet again.

Fight Fathers – Antares – Single Review

Word arrives that the English brooding-rock trio Fight Fathers are planning an EP for April release.

Fight Fathers - Antares - Single Review

Fight Fathers

With a darker space than their introduction the newest single to surface by Fight Fathers –  Antares reflects on the isolationism of depression, which paradoxically draws a composition of closer unity within the sound.




Opening with a drum sequence phrased within squelching submerged pedal strings which has a naturally raw tribalism that immediately burrows the ensuing four and just over one sixth minutes of the track deep in to the cortex prior to guitar making its entrance soon joined intoxicatingly with strummed bass which gives the piece its echoing revolution, when the vocal joins the composition the listener is already wreathed in a dark countenance.

Although, as the track evolves, guitar is given space to add texturing the ever present drum pattern holds Antares in revolving darkness akin to the ensnaring embrace of the black-dog before everything fades in to silence other than the vocal evocation and acoustic strings reflecting of the all encompassing reality of the darkest moments of depression.

Yet somehow in conclusion the audience senses that despite the worst moments, there is the possibility of a faint flickering light that does have the the potential to become a bright sunbathed landscape.

Antares is available on Amazon.*

Fair Haven – Life – Single Review

Fair Haven is a new indie-synth quartet from the USA.

Fair Haven

Fair Haven

With only one track to hear and less than a month in to existence Fair Haven have set out a space for themselves which holds attention.

Warming melodies drift around the room in tandem with the scintillating vocal that caresses the earlobes. Luxurious guitar floats through the timpani, whilst the intoxicating fragility of voice takes centre stage from which a sparkling key-board plays counterpoint to the drum kit that keeps everything in order.

Of particular notice is the manner in which Fair Haven have launched themselves, as though a seasoned group of players, with sublime tempo changes which enable them in – Life – to deliver a composition of delicate silk which has immense tensile strength and a quartet I look forward to hearing much more of in short order.
