Stand out tracks on the album

Sweet Glow

This is the opening track of the album and the melodic guitars reel you in. It Is a really interesting song to start an album with. It sort of has essence of bands such as The Used, Black Sabbath, Kings Of Leon and Kiss, I know a random mix but these were the first ideas when i first listened. It is a great song to open the album with and the five minutes take you on a journey.

1k Red Balloons

This song really spoke to me, I found it a joy to listen to and it’s the prefect track to listen to on a summers day. This song is very different from the one above as the sound has a different style of rock to it. It is a track that lwhen you listen to it you know will be great live.

Just Dreams

Pacey, different drama created by guitars. This is a track that allows you to hear how talented this band are. Listen for the guitar solos, stay for the journey the lyrics and vocals take you on.


What’s the verdict?

This is an exciting album, there is a lot to enjoy and also a lot to listen to. The guitar solos are fantastic and it’s really refreshing that each track sounds so different but somehow still make this album work really well altogether.
