Crow Moon are a Glasgow based four piece Progressive rock band made up of Angus Allen, Ben Main, Charlie Grimble, Max Murphy. Today I’ll be reviewing their latest single ‘Wickerman’.
‘Wickerman’ opens fast, with a nice bass and percussive intro, that builds as the song progresses, it manages to maintain a nice pace to the track though, not just escalating but instead finding a nice balance where the song has energy but isn’t just a frenzy of noise. Having said that, there is a lot happening, it’s not just a simple instrumental backing, but a surprisingly complex piece, that peaks and drops perfectly, for example around the 2 minute and 10 second mark the song slows down a little and then builds again, really showcasing the talented of this band in different ways throughout this nearly 5 minute track. This was my first exposure to Crow Moon but after hearing what they are capable of with this polished gem of a track I’ll be keeping an eye out for them in the future and I strongly suggest you do the same.
