TRANQUA LITE – TEMPERED TIDES -REVIEW

Tranqua Light are ‘offering something the Leeds market doesn’t currently have’ with their new track ‘Tempered Tides’

Tempered Tides’ has quite an upbeat tone to start with, however it does appear that the intro is ever so slightly dragged out a little further than it should have been. Either way, as the fitting slower vocals come in a notable contrast is formed between the upbeat happier backing and the slightly more melancholic, slower vocal style. Yet despite this subtle contrast, the aspects blend well together and form a rather ‘chill-out’ track

The track may be slightly dragged out, but overall it is a pretty good track for Tranqua Light.

AVENOIR – THE LEVIATHAN – REVIEW

Describing themselves as ‘too loud for your parents, too distorted for indie kids, just right for you’, come new Leeds based grunge band Avenoir with their new single ‘The Leviathan’.

The track starts off very low and quiet, bringing a clear grunge influence style from the very start of the track. Throughout ‘Leviathan’, Avenoir cleverly build up the track from a quieter foundation into a much more developed track with heavier drumming and differentiating guitar riffs, while still capturing a simplistic style that Avenoir are trying to achieve.As for visuals for the video, the simplistic location and setting fits perfectly with the style as well as well throughout out lighting changes to accentuate various changes within the track.

Being their debut single, Avenoir have already set the bar high for further releases, bringing out a strong track that falls well into their style and what they want to achieve. Avenoir are a band that are ready to rise and aren’t afraid to make the music to do it.

Be prepared as Boston Manor have released probably the weirdest video for their song ‘CU’ from their debut album ‘Be Nothing’.

Vocalist Henry Cox says “We shot the video whilst on tour in the US with Moose Blood. It was shot all in one day; we wanted to do something that was a little different to what we normally do with videos. The premise of it was basically a beginner’s guide to an acid trip. We were in this weird huge guesthouse somewhere in Pennsylvania which the production company had hired for the day. It was a blast!” Continue reading “WHAT IS HAPPENING IN BOSTON MANOR’S NEW VIDEO?”
