With the vast numbers of musicians introduced daily it is only a sadness that there are only twenty four hours in a day as only a mere fraction of those introductions can be featured. I would however like to thank all musicians for doing what they do to make the world a better place. In this years New Ninety the slots 30 to 21 comprise…
The English alt-rock band The Ringards revealed a new track last week.
This is the third time that The Ringards have featured and on each occasion they have offered something slightly different in influence, attesting to a group of musicians with differing approaches, yet able to melt those ideas in songs in which the listener becomes engaged.
Alice In A Nutshell has a ’60s brit-blues formulation mixed with 00’s garage to create a song which has a warm analogue texturing , clever melodic twists, tempo changes and a flattened dynamic range giving the composition plenty in which to invest the ears and I look forward to discovering more of their music through 2018.
I do hear of those who think music being played loudly is never a good idea – I do have to say, I completely disagree, often volume is a prerequisite.
Newly minted in the past few months The Ringards only have two tracks around, both less than a week old, for those who haven’t seem them playing live in their few appearances – though word arrives there will be more surfacing in short order.
Stay Where You Stand has a speaker moving bass that finds the desk and sub-woofer parting company ergo how would that not be possible for me to suggest spending time in their company. A simple architecture of chords spikes across the room with a thumping bass-drum beating through the ears enticing the audience to pogo as a scathing vocal laments of life and one is minded of the ’70s heathrow flight-path rock of The Members.
The Ringards I anticipate featuring frequently over the coming years, though whether they will necessarily remain ever in this style, time will tell as the two tunes around, both of top-notch quality, are of different countenance.
