This is especially true in the chorus where Etaoin flows through a memorising sequence of notes. To provide some further interest, it felt like the song needed to go somewhere else after the second chorus, perhaps to a small instrumental break. But overall, Pale Damp Cheeks is a well-written track with beautiful vocal delivery. A perfect song for kicking back to at a festival.
No/Hugs are definitely not just another generic female fronted rock band, the vocals and lyrics are awesome, the lead guitarist is great and the rest of the band are solid, never missing a beat.
Anyone reading this should definitely give them a listen, you won’t be disappointed!
The scratchy rhythm guitar sound fits really well with the rock n roll/punk aesthetic and it's not too thin sounding, it's wonderfully rich! We love Skaema and wish them all the best!
I am now ready to take on my day and kick its ass! The band is super tight and locked in. The guitars are super uplifting. The awesome bass line is right on with the killer drums. When it got to the guitar solo there were no disappointments. The solo was awesome!!!!! The vocal performance carried so much energy I skipped my coffee this morning. Beautiful voice!! All in all this song ROCKS!!! Listen to it today and walk away after ready to take on the world.
"Talk Talk" is super catchy! I picture hipsters twirling about to this upbeat indie tune, a Pabst Blue Ribbon in hand, and a smile on their faces. By the end of the song you can’t help but sing along and I found myself in a better mood after listening (and since then I have listened several times). I am so glad I had the opportunity to review the song and I look forward to listening to more by Kerosene Stars!
They seem to have a very good understanding of mixing in blues like guitar riffs to give it a "jam band" feel. It makes you feel like you are at an old school pop punk show where everyone is screaming every lyric. I am very impressed by this band and would love to check out their other songs!
One thing I don’t connect with personally is the lyrics. For me, they seem a little basic in the way they are structured with simple rhyming couplets that are a little lazy for me. I think the melody from the vocals could be worked on to improve the song further but that would come with structuring the lyrics to be more interesting and not necessarily having to rhyme each line with another.
The arpeggiated banjo line keeps one section of this song moving while the other section consists of chords that would shame any arena rock band into hiding. We also love the octave vocal treatment that’s a friendly nod to The Church and Midnight Oil’s ghosts of Christmas past. Forgotten ends as you hoped it would; with a meandering but scorching guitar solo that resonates the true colours of the song’s concept and tone. Not to be Forgotten!
The band´s sound is classic and smooth, but with a hidden hardness between lines, very classy.
I encourage listeners to cross Amber´s House door, sit down and listen to other great songs such as “Revo”(my favourite) or “Ride”. Worth it.
