The first track to surface from the EP – Drowned Out – was itself made available as a standalone single on the 2nd (available on bandcamp).

A pulsing and powerful exposition of highly capable musicians who are able to dig out gnarly riffs as well as tender melodies encased inside an emo wrapper to deliver a track that whets the listeners appetite for the full release.

The Copyrights

A ten track album (available from Electric Pop Records) that harks back to unencumbered garage rock as the high octane free-spirited charge of swarming guitar, punch bass, snapping drums and infectious vocal surge in to the room filling the listener with a boost of enthusiastic energy to burn in a pogo.

The album (available on bandcamp) is the final chapter in a trio of releases, spaced out since September 2017 with each having a different view of a self-reflection.

Three, Fever, being the most groove-laden of the trilogy, affords the greatest contrast between the deep cuts of the songs and the distinctive high pitch of vocal.

Moog Jam 1 is the third track.

A nine track album (available on bandcamp) which although riven with downcast narrative and vocal finds the listener tapping alongside, with some delight, the sprightly tempo and quirky instruments.

Always a sucker for steel guitar – my pick of the release is the middle track – The Sun Alone.

Frostyn – This Is How It’s Gonna Be – Single Review

The alt-indie project Frostyn from Minneapolis (USA) will be releasing the single This Is How It’s Gonna Be on the 22nd.

Frostyn
Frostyn

A track which runs two conjoined ideas which unify, like strawberries and cream, to create a moreish taster.

Underpinned by bright and breezy twinkling of the stardust guitar and synthesised loops, the minors of the elongated properties of the vocal swathe the listener in a web of infectious sadness leaving the audience both swaying on the dance-floor while losing themselves an introspective moment of self-reflection.

This Is How It’s Gonna Be makes for an intimate follow-up to the EP Doc of Love from June of last year – I merely look forward to hearing more while in the meantime I will just clear away that dust that seems to have blown in to my eyes.
