With a more centrist sound Not That Easy splashes light paint to the track, which, while a little too radio friendly for my everyday playlist, does provide a bright melody when the need is for bright colours.

Wells – Shepherd – Video

Wells is an Australian alt-rock quartet.

Wells

Wells

From their début EP The Pale King, Shepherd is a track showered with dark clouds as Wells put out for discovery their brooding melodies which envelop the listener in a sadness. The five and a bit minute track is well paced, allowing the spaces to define the sentiments.

Shepherd, for all its brooding leaves the listener feeling strangely comforted as Wells craft a track that holds light under the pall. The execution is top rate with the emotional pips being squeezed without tipping over into sentimentality, the building tempo and spacing mid-way through gives the music a shifting organic embodiment that makes an immediate second play a requirement.

The Owls – You’re Alright – Video

The Australian alt-rock band The Owls are planning to release their début LP early in 2016.

The Owls - You're Alright

The Owls

The first track to appear from the album, is You’re Alright, which showcases the garage fuzz roots of The Owls, whilst adding their rock signature.

Having spent much of 2014 on the road, The Owls decided to focus this year on honing their craft with the idea of putting together an LP and You’re Alright is an indicator of the steps made over the past few months.

Godfrey-Turner Overdrive – Awake – Single Review

Godfrey-Turner Overdrive –  also abbreviated to G.T.O. is an alt-rock quintet from Australia.

Godfrey-Turner Overdrive

Due for official release on the 13th of November is the single Awake.

Some-what progressive  / contemporary in nature, whilst the listener senses they probably need to straighten the clothes they do not feel the need to wear full evening dress to enjoy Awake as Godfrey-Turner Overdrive add a scuff to a style of rock that makes you feel older and wiser for having it in your collection.

The quintet layer the sounds with an extra topping of creamy guitar which gives the track its sophistication and underneath you will hear the more elemental rock on which the number is built that, for me, makes Awake a three minute journey worth taking more than once.

Godfrey-Turner Overdrive are a group of capable musicians who are able to balance the need for a connection with their audience, whilst not being afraid to ask them, in turn, to raise their game to meet the music.
