Allegory is the alt-rock band of Daniel Ansell (Guitar / Bass), Ellie Day (Vocals) and Rhys Bennett (Drums) from Portsmouth in England.
Formed in mid 2014 Allegory have been able to put out a couple of EPs with word of more Studio work currently being undertaken. Still measuring their direction of travel there is a stark difference between their first EP Through Time And Space, released in August 2014 and the follow-up of September last year – Innermost Odyssey, so it will be interesting to hear when they next step. That said there is a commonality of thread as the trio create music which has a low hum of continual bass that features significantly and inevitably that is what captures my attention.
The brooding nature of the sounds are highlighted by the purple velvet vocal that caresses the ears with whispered menaces of partnership collisions and the drums strike out rings of concentric circles whilst guitar adds a slightly psychedelic hue as influences from Pondicherry wind their way around the room.
My only perturbation is, how, with the same person playing bass and guitar this works in live performance, as both form corner stones to the out-put of Allegory. So I would not be surpised to see some changes in who does what and how many do those things in due course.
