Neon Atlas Get Up Single Review

Band: Neon Atlas Single: Get Up Review: Bobby Green I remember reviewing Graffiti Reality earlier on this year and being really impressed with its quality and how as an album it worked really well. It wasn’t just a collection of their songs, it had a feel, a groove, an overall image. Get up is taken from this album and serves as a great snapshot of Graffiti Reality. Since releasing their second album in July of this year, they have been nominated for several awards in Ireland, and are attracting attention from both the UK and US. Gigging extensively through the summer and touring the summer festival circuit, the group have built up a loyal and substantial following with their flirting between balls out Alt Rock and melodic grooves with a towering chorus’s. Get Up is one of their melodic offerings, but don’t let that fool you, Neon Atlas pack a hefty punch when they want to, but with Get Up they are showing you their softer side. But how boring would it be to have a one dimensional sound? 2016 is going to be a big year for Neon Atlas, They delivered so much with Graffiti Reality and their live shows.

Pleasure Beach ‘Dreamer To The Dawn’ EP Review

EP: Dreamer To The Dawn Review: Bobby Green Pleasure Beach are a Belfast five piece unit that have crafted together a beautiful sound within the Dreamer To The Dawn EP. The EP launches with Go and it brought me right back to the post C86 scene with its urgent vocals and raw but ever so perfect guitars that cut over a pounding rhythm taking the listener through some beautiful harmonies wrapped up in this delightful slice of alternative synth pop.  It has tints of The Motorcycle Boys Big Rock Candy Mountain sliced up with That Petrol Emotion. The title track Dreamer To The Dawn is more synth pop than alternative showcasing the strength of their song writing and harmonies. Pop is no longer a dirty word with so many Irish bands leading the charge giving this genre credibility far beyond the mass marketed pap deafening the world’s ears with its lack of depth. I’ve always been a huge fan of good pop and Pleasure Beach unashamedly flirt with that. The EP closes with Hayley, a downtempo affair that is an atmospheric drift into a dreamscape where Pleasure Beach will welcome you into their world. Once there, you’ll find it difficult to leave. Dreamer To The Dawn is Out Now on Faction Records. If you don’t wake up to Pleasure Beach you might just miss this dream....
