Heat Vs Light’s new album ‘Murderers’ is far from the harsh title suggests. Full of ethereal guitars, unique arrangements and a mix of melodies in each track, this post-rock sound delivers more life than death. However, there’s a confusion between the instrumentals and the vocals which makes this album miss the top marks.
If you pick any track off of this album, the talent of this band’s musicians is really what shines. This is especially true in ‘Like Stars,’ which not only samples sounds of the ocean and thunder, but also fuses bits and pieces of different melodies and time signatures to create a full, coherent sound. Likewise is the story for ‘I Love You Donna Ingham + I Miss U Both Loads,’ which is a lush, vibrant, multi-faceted song void of J.P. Keenan’s vocals. This song builds by adding layers upon layers of sounds until it leaves you with an emotional and passionate song. This track is the best on the album, showcasing the bands innate ability to convey a story through music alone.
