Fan of garage rock and fancy an early Christmas present this year? If so, then this year the guys from Indigo Bones will be releasing their EP of the same name. If rock and roll is what you want, then you’re guaranteed to get it from this album.
Right away, we get a track filled with rock and roll with the first track, Vertical Sleep. We’re instantly given sick-sounding guitar riffs from the very beginning, which then leads onto the first verse. The vocalist also lives up to the rock and roll sound, so we’re good there too. My favourite part of this track would have to be during the bridge of the song. I love when the track goes soft for a few lines, gradually building up to the last chorus and headbang.
Next we have Delicate, which starts out with a jazzy kind of style, with plucky chords and and light tapping from the drums. I also love when only the vocalist is heard for a few seconds, everytime the lines “delicate, delicate” appear. It’s a pretty nice touch to this track.
Next up is Silver Nosebleeds. This time, it appears we have what I presume is a different vocalist. This time, the vocals are deeper and a little more gravelly than before, something that always goes down well in a rock song. This track isn’t literally about silver blood though, if that’s what you were thinking.
And lastly, we have Elastic Patient. We have the original vocalist taking over again for this fast-paced, jumpy track. Definitely more of a headbanger out of the rest of the tracks, which makes a nice finish for this album.
If I have to be completely honest about one thing, it would have been nice to hear a bit more from the second vocalist. We’d sometimes hear him harmonised with the first, but to get more from him on his own would be good.
Regardless, I wish Indigo Bones the best for this release. I also hope that this EP will end this year on a high for them.
