Before we have the chance to miss them, The Pinheads will return from the studio …
Adding to the country’s colourful collection of alternative music and artists, Rhys Fitch has formed a fresh, appreciable band while travelling abroad in North London: The Big Crashing Waves.
Through notes of alternative, punk and rock practises scattered with spoken word, To Feel is truly a deep reflection on everyday thoughts, lifestyle, feelings and decisions made. Think Gyroscope combined with Angus & Julia Stone.
The first track on the record, Do We Take, is the perfect opening song, defining the hype-filled sound that comes and goes throughout the album, and outlining the Australian vocal style within.
If you’re considering having a listen to this casual and truthful album, it is definitely recommended, especially if you’re a fan of Australian alternative music.
Angst-filled song What Did He Do Wrong? Is traced with emotion fuelled spoken word, backed up with your typical punk gritty vocals. The piece entices the listener into deeper thoughts including “Where do you draw the line?”, accompanied by cries for help “You’ve got to feel our love” and chilling guitar chords.
Encompassing a different sound to the rest of the album, darker single Break Me Away was produced by Al Groves (Known for producing Bring Me The Horizon’s record Thats The Spirit). The rest of the album was managed by upcoming producer Loic Galliard. This single also fits well as the last track, bringing the album to an end.
If you’re considering having a listen to this casual and truthful album, it is definitely recommended, especially if you’re a fan of Australian alternative music, it even doubles up as a gym motivation soundtrack, this has been confirmed.
