Running Behind Time
The once Queen Tribute band kept in time by Damien Dockery has turned the table and made an album of original material. Since finding companionship with Armenian singer-songwriter David Zalinian, this Budapest based rock outfit have evolved and strived to become a sound of their own. BackFoot released their brand new single Memory earlier this year, previously mentioned on Alternative Fruit, it's now time to take a look at some of the other tracks from the record. The album is out and the songs are diverse, with talent seeping from the stitching of each number.
State of Mind for example opens with a heavy guitar riff with catchy drums that cause us to move about. The rhythm boils down to a ska sounding drive and lyrics spin tales that emotify the music. Deep and hearty vocals spread good feels over the alive and energetic music. Electric guitar and rock drumming combine to bring melody and blues to a culmination of push. Light touches mix with heavy jolts to give the sound a double edged quality. Keyboards lightly dapple with melodic phrasing leaving David's songsmithing to do what it does the best.
I Know A Guy opens with a great drumming fill, it sounds like bongos. The frantic and up-beat groove spilling from the percussion gives way to fabulous keyboards and guitar strums which sprinkle the song with good vibrations. Classic drum-kit rolls in on top of the hand drums and the song brings up the revs into the next gear. Swaying melody with easy laid back stylings make the track smooth and enjoyable. Sultry guitars spin melodic patterns in pentatonic minor while no-doubt the band cosy up with the rhythm.
A toned down and dreamy feel opens Double Kiss. Expert guitar and bass melody tread out the track progression and vocals and piano fill in the spaces. Feelingful and questioning lyrics wonder and contemplate the happenings of possibly the night before. Swagger in the swing, the music sits back in a comfy chair and lets the listener enjoy. The whole album takes an easy angle and a laid back groove then fills it with energetic and interesting music. There is a lot of skill behind each piece and the unique sound of David Zalinian makes it a truly memorable record.
