THERE is no denying that this track is pretty hard to listen to for the first few listens. It sounds like this St Neots band are rocking out live in their rehearsal space and that possibly one microphone has had the tough job of capturing their sound.
It sounds murky, distant, often overpowering, but the energy of the band and a strong purposeful vocal do come through enough to make me think there's an excellent song here.
The song's dynamics are refreshingly varied and although a minute or two could probably be shaved from its epic eight minutes, it holds your interest throughout.
At times it sounds like a more earthy Muse and at others an inventive, haphazard punk band. There's much more than a song here, but it will take a trip to a studio to marry the song and the fiery performance in a way that does justice to both.
