I was asked to review some demos from this up and coming 5 piece indie band and I was more than happy to do so.
‘Wicked Witch’ was not what I was expecting, and I suppose the mark of a good song is that it doesn’t always do what you think it’s going to do. This track has a lot of passion and is upbeat, I hope to be able to see them live because I think this song would work incredibly well in a live setting. Overall this track is tight and well produced and I thoroughly recommend giving it a listen.
‘Birthday’ has a nice thrumming guitar intro, that is upbeat and again filled with a warm energy, I again think this track would be well received if and when they play it live. I think this was my favourite of the three tracks, it just gets you involved, especially with its catchy little hook about the festival down the road. I think this is another on the long list of songs that’ll get stuck in my head for an unfeasible amount of time, and I thank Tiny Vinyl for that, better this that something I don’t like.
‘Tunnels’ was different from the other two tracks, a little bit more of a melancholic edge, a little bit softer and slower, but no less good because of it. The vocalist for this track added something different to the track as well, he has a gentle voice which carries well enough to be heard. I liked tunnels, and I always like a band that doesn’t mind changing up their tracks because you get to see what they can really do.
So those are my thoughts on the demo tracks from Tiny Vinyl if you want to have a listen and judge for yourselves them check out their Soundcloud and if you want to keep up to date with what’s going on with the band then check them out here on Facebook.
