Underpinned by heavy rock sensibilities the quartet are able to create music which simultaneously bulges the speakers while soothing furrowed brows.

Pulsing bass and percussion are counterbalanced by harmonised vocal phrases and sweeping expansive guitar melodies to deliver in Generation Z an approaching five minutes captivating storyline.

Their music is predominately purely instrumental passages, composed in intricate, resplendent yet inviting structuring through which vocal occasionally intersperses, affording the songs even further their tender allure.

The first track to surface from the forthcoming album ( which is available on bandcamp) – Ruins – is a fair representation of their delicately layered songs.

A ten track album which takes a contemplative look at the parlous state of societal cohesion which although pondering and dour in nature there is faint candle of optimism that flickers through the gloom and leaves the audience more optimistic for the future than when they arrived.

Strong song writing and vocal delivery is underscored by flecks of unanticipated instrumentation, which afford the songs their poignancy. The second song to appear from the LP and also second in the running order is the horn accented Addictions.

Fascinatingly the B side of the single is a piano version of Mercy, which gives an insight to their songwriting song starting points and expands on how don’t trust Vegas are able to use their musical prowess to create material which is both expansive whilst simultaneously has a clear direction of travel.

The full version interweaves the synths and guitar to create the generous backdrop for the vocal to emote of the context of the track, while the bass and percussion brings everything together akin to a spanner turning a bolt.

Word arrives that during the course of 2017 don’t trust Vegas aim to release singles on a fairly regular basis and it will be interesting to discover whether each release will also include the source material.

Fragile Creatures

A quintet who are able to take the listener on a wide journey of discovery, Fragile Creatures combine threads of influence, to deliver a sound which undulates from compression to extension much like the suspension system on a car travelling along the road and like the passenger who sits relaxed inside, they are equally adept at, ironing out the bumps in the road.




Whilst Fragile Creatures ever retain a glossy-sheen to the finish, there is never a sense that it is music to meet a market, rather material with which they have a personal connection, which happenstances to be buffered and polished.

Not something I would add to my ‘every-day playlist’, Fragile Creatures take a firm grip in the ‘relaxed evening collection’ as they are able to provide music that can form a core focus captivating attention, or, equally lay as a back-drop to a quiet burble of conversation with a soundtrack that remains in earshot.
