With Queens of the Stone Age in the middle of a UK arena tour, we’ve decided to highlight
five of the bands best tracks for this edition of "Fives".
We've got the new EP from Yorkshire riff merchants NOSE right here! Take a listen to 'Sick
Continuing our Reuben theme from last week’s Fives and in celebration of frontman Jamie Lenman’s new double solo album, we take a look at two of the albums for "Versus". Its
‘Racecar Is Racecar Backwards' against 'In Nothing We Trust'.
Calgary's debut EP 'Fight Fire With Fire' is a bright, warming collection of indie pop songs.
With comparisons to Hellogoodbye and John Mayer, the four tracks showcase a band with pop sensibilities and plenty of potential to breakthrough. We caught up with the band to find out more.
Returning with their first album in six years, 'Balancing' sees Hertfordshire’s The October Game showcase dynamic growth and versatility with a brooding undertone throughout. Already Heard recently spoke to Luke Williams and Nick Kozuch to discuss the album in
more detail; the writing process, its various packages, and working with Scylla Records.
New Jersey’s hardcore outfit Gatherer have released their debut EP ‘Postcards’ through Glass Nail Records. This release by the five-piece is somewhat short but it’s the quality of the tracks that matters, especially when this is their very first offering as a band.
Opener ‘Wedding Bells’ kick starts the EP, introducing Christian Berrigan’s raw vocals that compliment their hardcore sounds perfectly. The passion that is expressed through the vocals is continued throughout the whole EP, which works particularly well in title track ‘Postcards.’ This is a definite standout track, with a mid section containing an infectious riff that works perfectly behind the gravelly screams. ‘Brittle Bones’ is another commendable track especially with dominant drumming in sections that produces an opposing powerful sound over softer guitar.
For a debut EP, ‘Postcards’ is a very impressive release and Gatherer should be proud of their efforts. My only criticism is the length of the record: totalling to just less than 8 minutes in length I was enjoying it so much that I wanted it to last longer. Nonetheless, musically the band has pulled it off and hardcore fans should certainly check Gatherer out, a five-piece that I look forward to hearing more from in the future.
'Postcards' by Gatherer is out now on Glass Nail Records.
