The Innocent Bystanders
No Place To Go
Rock and Soul from San Diego today on Alternative Fruit. Since supporting The Rolling Stones, this California music project has made big news with their debut EP. Attractive Nuisance hit all the right notes in all the right places making it a firm favourite in the new music section. Now with a brand new record in the making, the band can't help but demolish the silence with a brand new single from the sessions so far. With a reputation for bending the rules over backwards until they point in your face, this band really do bring their genre back to life.
A warm steel string guitar brings the opening chords and a sleek drumbeat catches the wind. Drifting out to sea, a saxophone casts its magical melody in order to warm up the vocal. Heartfelt and meaningful verse lines are threaded through the silk like a red ribbon, lustrous and embroidered with experience. A culmination of melody and instrumentation bring out a full-on flavour which holds back on spice yet reaches into each aspect. A rock n roll groove not dissimilar to Meatloaf gives a heartbeat to the composition while a Polyphonic Spree style medley of talents shoot like fireworks into a deep navy sky. Carefree and ungrounded, we can drift, swing, or drill to this catchy tune.
