Real Life is a precursor to a forthcoming EP – Night Dreams.

Relax, find a partner to lay back with and let the emulsion of Real Life drip oils on your moving bodies. The exotic vooice streams across the torso as the sounds weave betwixt intertwined bodies. The only sadness being this last for only 3:54 seconds.

One hopes for a night of exploration with the EP appearing later this year and I look forward to being able to provide you with a preview of the release.

A full review of The Urchins would make sense and I hope to be able to do that in due course, for now the two track single is a good place to introduce the band.

The title track – I Feel A Fall Coming – combines tempered percussion, delicious bass, flighty guitar along with cathartic Hammond organ to which the vocal adds the drips of honey in a track that runs to just under four minutes. Whilst, there is a familiarity with Factory Records, the quintet have updated the sound to deliver a track which needs to be left on repeat as the sprawling dance beat bounces around the room.

Introducing a refrain from a mouth-organ to the sound gives Getting Old Too Soon a quirky twist to a straight rock derived number. Taking the notes away from major chords allows The Urchins to inject a plaintiff emotional tug to the track which runs an identical nine seconds less than four minutes as the opener. This is the track that is my pick of the release with the similarity of chord progressions and fuzz to Tommy Gun by The Clash.

A fine début release and I hope this will find The Urchins becoming far more familiar to a wider audience.

Universal Thee – Aranis Natas – Single review

Universal Thee, from Scotland, have just released their latest single – Aranis Natas.

Universal Thee - Aranis Natas

Universal Thee – Aranis Natas

First reviewed in February of last year, Universal Thee, who also charted at number 17 in the New Year Ninety 2014, have created a song in Aranis Natas which has a darker texture, which gives the band a more alt-rock derived flavour.

A smartly structured bass line opens up the five minute track, setting a mood, with the percussion laying down a pivot point. The guitars are allowed to float in a spectral space, whilst the dual vocals provides further layering to the track.

It will be interesting to see if Aranis Natas marks a transition for Universal Thee towards a darker mood, which is certainly somewhere that they prove to be adept songwriters as testified by this new release.

Aranis Natas – Single – Universal Thee is available on iTunes*.
