45. – Godspeed – Single Review

It was heading towards two years ago that the Bradford (England) trio of Craig (Vocals / Guitar), Chris (Guitar) and Matt (Bass) who form the core of the rock band 45. last featured. On the 17th they released the three track single – Godspeed.

45. - Godspeed - Single Review

The extended gap is not a reflection of lack of new material, rather my own inabilities to keep up to date, later than deserved, an update.

The three tracks on the single (available on bandcamp) are each of different texturing.

The opening track – It’s Got Soul is a dark buffered composition which has the listener investigating to ascertain if they have moving foundations as the pulsing bass / drum combinations rumble through the speakers.

My pick of the release – Glorywalk – is a more emotional and empathetic treatise of a tautly strung lead guitar and snare drum which gives the piece something of a marching anthemic to it, though as the song progresses, in to earshot swims Puducherry cultural influences.

The closer and the title song, Godspeed, is a bright and breezy country-blues influenced rock composition, which appropriately links back to their americana-rock introduction.

The four track EP (available on bandcamp) is a more nuanced set of songs than music of theirs previously featured.

The lead acoustic on the closing track – Tomorrow – introduces a song that layers rock’n’roll inside a southern-blues framework to which the vocal is ideally suited, which finds the listener stomping alongside and is my pick of the release.

45 – Longshot – Audio

The English Americana trio 45 released the EP Total Curtain Failure last month.

The roughly thirteen minute four track is signatured by bending guitar strings and extended vocal twists and turns as the trio inject UK phlegmatic indifference into classic US rock, resulting in a release which counter-intuitively is able to broach the Atlantic Ocean in a joyous marrying of ideas – revealing something to add to the ‘moments of reflective’ playlist.

The second track on the EP (available on bandcamp) is Longshot.
