Here We Harbour, an alt-indie band from the USA, are set to release their début EP – Arrivals on the 13th.
Here We Harbour
Silent Cities, the last of the five tracks on Arrival takes listener on a journey that takes in Metal, US Indie, classic rock and melody in an almost four minute number. Here We Harbour don’t attempt to merge the changes one into the other, rather making each step a sharp definition and rather than this sounding like a series of unrelated chapters, they maintain a theme through the track that ensures the completed work makes for a song that is understandable and as importantly enjoyable.
As regular readers know I am not a great fan of the high-pitched screechy vocal that is associated with much of US indie, which doesn’t mean you won’t be either, but there is far more than that to the voice as it switches through tempo changes from melodious sympathy to venting spleen.
I have had a chance to listen to a couple of tracks on Arrivals, both offering a punchy core along with transitional movement and judging by those two Here We Harbour have something to say that is worth making time to hear and wish them every success with the EP.
