The quartet of Pete Cerni (Vocals / Guitar), Nathan Wheatley (Drums / Vocals), Johnny Beech (Guitar / Vocals) and Paul Trevorrow (Bass) from Melbourne (Australia) who form the indie-rock band As A Rival will be releasing the LP Griefers on the 2nd of November.
As A Rival
The music is a combination of radio-indie and riffs of rock that creates a collection of songs which are able to grab the attention of both audiences and keep them entertained, with sufficient gloss to engage supporters of formulaic hooks while jagged edges of unvarnished splinters retain those who like the speakers to rattle.
What We Got is the antepenultimate of the twelve songs on Griefers, which is available on bandcamp.
The Australian indie-rock quartet Molly & The Krells revealed the EP Losing Friends on the 20th.
Molly & The Krells
Carefully negotiating the line between being just another commercial radio-play focused indie band and having some teeth to the music is never an easy path. Molly & Krells are able to step away from merging in to shadows with the grungy blues progressions which flows from the two guitars creating tracks in which the audience actively wants to be immersed.
The first track of the five on the EP is Rejected.
The US indie-rock trio Levy & The Oaks released the LP Sound Of The City yesterday.
Levy & The Oaks
Last featured in 2016, Levy & The Oaks have moved their brushes to a different medium with much of the album being of light textured indie-dance and far from their blues-rock derived earlier music. That doesn’t mean to say they have completely drifted away and the latter end of the album is more dipped in the earlier paints, making the penultimate song Another Night Out In Asbury my pick of the release.
The Italian indie-rock sextet Cemetery Drive released the single 2 AM on the 13th.
Links between emo, metal, and indie-dance are forged in to a comprehensible output by the sextet in 2 AM to deliver a song that settles kindly on the ears despite the juxtapositions of root source influences.
