Power-trio from Adelaide ‘Sincerely, Grizzly’ dropped this 9 minute epic back in February. Sadly it’s taken me this long to get onboard..and just as im getting my head around this incredible song, I learn there is a full length headed our way in November titled ‘Halves’ handled by Black Night Crash Records. Frickin rad.
The band has a dynamic and powerful approach to song writing not often heard in the current wave of post-genre-screamo. The attack and urgency of the opening minutes lean towards early LaDispute/Touche Amore but as the song relents and unwinds the guitars back off, drums and bass carry for a while and semi-spoken word vocal delivery and noodly-guitar parts balance it out. It makes for a really memorable piece of music. The closing line which is repeated over the final moments of ‘Kafkaesque’ is an eerie little mantra ‘I wish I could wish you well/But I hope you go to hell’ and is bound to grab folks attention and set crowds into a manic chant full of mic grabs and chest bumps.
This is awesome! Bring on November!
