The Scotland based alt-rock quartet Long-Distance released the single Be A Man on the 16th.
Be A Man (available on bandcamp) is a blend of melancholic-rock and indie-dance which intrigues for the disparity of source influences that Long-Distance are able to deliver with a striking confidence that holds the listener fully absorbed.
The slowly bending guitar drifts through the speakers, as though a spectral imprint, while the quiet pinning of bass and drum lay as a frame for a signature vocal which is able to stretch to notes high and low enabling the band to impart a composition of intense emotions.
With only a couple of songs available, each a year apart, I merely hope that it isn’t a further twelve months before I next hear from Long-Distance.
