Review By Bobby Green
Deep Sky Objects return with their second single from their much raved-about self-titled debut EP ‘Deep Sky Objects’
‘This City’s At War’ impressed me with its ball tingling bass and awesome production, but nothing prepared me for having my face ripped off by the power of ‘Desire’ as it cuts across you like a highly skilled surgeon with such precise technique you’d be able to put your face back on before the chorus without leaving any scarring.
The joy of having only 1 guitar, drums and bass couldn’t be highlighted better with ‘Deep Sky Objects’ and DD Foley’s bass that’s allowed to not just rumble away like so many others but direct the sound and feel of their music. If any kids want to know how to use a bass guitar properly, start off with John Entwistle and work your way through to DD Foley. I’m not comparing the two but simply highlighting the power the bass guitar has when used correctly.
‘Desire’ is fuelled by Thomas O’Brien’s thundering drumming and DD Foley’s driving bassline before reaching its culmination with a radiant riff that exhibits the bands innate talent for smart song-writing and honest performance.
With some decent airplay and live performances there should be no stopping these Kingdom alt rockers. They certainly have a sound that can tickle balls across the globe.
