As soon as I heard the first few seconds of “Millennial,” I realized the description was right - the drums are incredibly complex and fun to listen to and attempt to follow. This isn't to take away from the guitars, which play an integral part in the overall rhythm, and the slightly off, very thick vocals that pull it all together. It’s a catchy song though I wouldn't expect to hear it on the radio - it doesn't follow the beaten path of radio rock, which is a good thing.
In “Unplugged,” the guitars shine more in this song, and possess the same intense melodic intricacies that the drums have.
“Burn Your Name” has a little psychedelic pop going on, thinly iced over a solid yet tasty rock cake. The galloping chorus sounds awesome with the slightly murky guitar chords, and the song rocks enthusiastically from the clearer verses to the grungy choruses to make for a thoroughly interesting song.
“Tsunami” sounds every bit as frenetic as one would imagine at the beginning, slowing down to incorporate more of a fluid sound to accommodate the lyrics. The swirling riff and choppy drums set the perfect tone for this dong.
“Stands To Reason” is the low balancing song to the higher-toned songs that preceded it. It was nice to hear more bass used, both with the bass guitar and the bass drum, particularly when played with the same unique style that was used with the lead guitar and drums. It also seems to be a perfect sound level for the vocals and sounds great all together.
This is the type of band with a unique enough sound to garner a cult like following even if it takes a little time. I really enjoyed the very different sound of this band, and thoroughly look forward to hearing more that they have to offer in the future!
