Meaning, it’s no surprise that the Brisbane based three-piece have changed up their approach with each single release.
The groups newest offering Walk Of Atonement boasts a stadium-rock feel through its epic use of melodies and high pitches and is definitely a step in the right direction for the up and comers (who were recently awarded a grant from the Queensland Government).
[Walk of Atonement] is a welcome change that’ll have hard rock enthusiasts in awe.
With the soaring highs of the chorus providing an operatic atmosphere, Siana Davis’ voice really stands up as something special, even if she seems like a bit of an Amy Lee (Evanescence) clone.
