A Flash Flood of Colour
A british band, wouldn't say they're quite rock but they can be classed under such genre. They are pretty amazing, if I must say so myself. This album is by far the best that they have produced so far! They have a dubstep-ish feel to them, but then they scream as well, they bring several genres into one, which is great. They make dubstep bearable.
This album is about 1 hour long and holds 15 tracks on it.The band has 4 members who are:
Arguing With Thermometers
Gandhi Mate, Gandhi
Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here
Pack of Thieves
Hello Tyrannosaurus, Meet Tyrannicide
Sssnakepit (Hamilton remix)
Sssnakepit (Serial Killaz remix)
System... and Meltdown
The reason I am putting these two together, is because they are actually one song when you listen to them after each other, and it makes sense because if together the track title would be System Meltdown. They fit and I think it is great how they have done it.
System... is a great start to this album, grabs your attention and the one thing that I really love is the fact that you know they're British, they don't try to be something they are not, either. System... has great lyrics and a brilliant beat behind it, Rou makes the lyrics even better with his vocals.
Meltdown, the carry on from System... This track has such an amazing feel to it, the kind you would expect to hear in a club with the dubstep feel to it, brilliant lyrics and vocals here too.
This was the first song I heard from this album, quite fast paced in the way of rhythm and beat but the vocals aren't as quick as that. When played live this track brings an epic amount of energy to the crowd and everyone really gets into it, when I saw them I was at the front and Rou actually put the mic to me to sing the chorus, it was great! Very addicting, I can listen to this on repeat and not get bored. Brilliant. Definitley one you should check out if you are a first time listener.
Warm Smiles Do Not Make You Welcome Here
Quite an upbeat start to this track with a funky little rhythm in there. This track is flawless. The vocals are better than ever and make the lyrics stand out, also another one that is brilliant live. It is not fast paced, rather slow to be honest but the constant beat makes it seem like it is supposed to be fast paced.
Totally recommend this one.
One of my favourite tracks right now, this is a slow one but the lyrics are excellent and Rou really puts his emotions into it. This is one I listen to at least once a day, without fail. There isn't much I can say without repeating myself, but it is a lovely one to listen to, I can't up this one more than I am. Anyone I talk to about music will always get me asking them to listen this.
One of my other favourites, extremely catchy and has an intense video to it. Lyrics are amazing as always. The beat stands out a mile, kind of heavy but fits nicely into the song. The techno feel for this track is energetic and really grips you. My favourite lyric is 'If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything' mostly because it opened my eyes, which happens a lot when I listen to music. The guys are basically telling you to be yourself and not let anyone walk over you, you have to stand for something otherwise what is the point?
Last track to the album, and what a brilliant way to end it. Making me want more. The heavy techno feel and beat make this track what it is. Also again, the lyrics are eye openers. This band have really evolved and matured a lot in the last few years and that shows a lot here, even though they do some odd mimicks in their music, they are still trying to get points across, just in a fun way to make it enjoyable. Excellent track, I'd hit this up on youtube if you want a feel for this band.
This band have slowly crept their way to my most played, I was never such a big fan of them, yes I liked them, but recently their lyrics have a lot more of a meaning to me and they have progressed with their sound, making it better.
They put on a brilliant show live and I'm glad to say I have also managed to meet them (I have the tendancy to linger by the tour bus' like a creep at gigs) they are so down to earth and made me laugh so much.
I would recommend this 100%
Thanks for reading!
