Yesterday the English garage-grunge trio, Johnny Kills, released the single Seems.
No, you haven’t got a fly buzzing inside your speakers it really is the coils of the sawing guitar introducing the track.
Rapidly building in to a fuller sound – Seems – is in some ways a distillation of their previous songs as it draws on many elements which were the pivots of earlier pieces to create a fusion of their creative influences affording the track a familiarity, for those who know their music, with a fresh space of its own.
There is a grunge style welding of the emphasis of mid bar and slumping endings which affords the calmly paced composition its gloopiness while the expansive vocal, conversely, gives Seems a breezy zest making for a track that is an antidote to the daily grind of life.
Seems – Single – Johnny Kills is available on iTunes.*
