The lyrics to this track I do really like. I like the angst and the tension that is created by the vocals. Anyone who knows me knows I love an angry song! My favourite line is:
‘I need to know, what is it in me that made you hate me so’
Other highlights for me on this first set are Safe, Grave and Smile.
Moving onto the second of the three sets, Food that Moves, and my instant favourites were:
The change in pitch of the vocals is a nice change and this song (as has been commented) is quite Bluesy. At about 2 minutes in its almost as though the song changes to another one but the melody is still carried on very subtley and then is more evident as the song progresses. I like this because when the first part ends, there is some synth sound like a computer dying and this lull and guitar solo for me represents some kind of reboot. One of the pleasures in listening to music is that you can interpret it in your own way, but I wonder…
Can you talk me through the creative process of the track ‘I can’t see the light’? I have my own interpretation of what is going on there and am intrigued to know how different it is from the intention you had?
It’s quite hard to remember back to any particular point for creating this song, however Heath seems to remember that he originally wrote two seperate songs which became merged together.
Towards the end of the track, the tempo changes again and this sound very much reminds me of the sound that they seem to move more towards in the third set (we’ll get to that very soon).
What can I say about this? I‘ll leave you to be the judge this time, especially as I find it quite a sexy number!
The third and final set is a group of …’Roughs for new album’. My favourites…
If I am feeling a little reflective, then this song is the one that has the ability to make me cry. Everything is kept very simple and that is what gives it that strength and passion.
One of my favourite tracks is ‘Please don’t change’, it tugs at my heart strings and has the ability to make me cry at times. What is your favourite track so far?
We all have different favourites. The songs that are the most difficult to form are probably the most satisfying, although a fresh song, or a work in progress is often the most interesting to us. Anyway seeing as you asked: Heath is really into ‘Hurricane’ at the moment, and other favourites amongst us all are currently ‘Safe’, ‘Black Box’, and ‘Please Don’t Change’.
I think this song is a good transition track between please don’t change and Hurricane, What do you think? It’s quite unusual for the drum beat to take my attention on a track, but it does on this one.
And the song you have been waiting for since the review started – I present to you…
Having heard some of the other tracks we know that they have the ability to add multiple layers of sound alongside the melody. This add dimension but I also think that they can do simplicity. I love the slow tracks as much as those with a quicker tempo. I am not usually a big fan of auto-tune but used correctly it can definitely add to a song and this is demonstrated by beethum, but who do they get compared to?
Are there any artists that you are often compared to?
We’re open to any comparisons we just might not agree…
Who are your musical inspirations/heroes?
Anything from Elvis and Sinatra to D.O.A and Aphex Twin…
I think their sound is most definitely coming together and I, for one, am excited to hear what’s next and so…
Whats next for you guys?
Not sure really – we’re interested to hear what people think of the music, so we guess getting heard is a priority. Maybe a gig or two…?
I have taken to always asking which track artsits would cover if they were to be invited onto ‘Live Lounge’, what track would you cover?
The FAME theme tune.
Having been played on BBCIntroducing two weeks in a row there is no doubt that these guys have something to share. So have a listen, let me know what you think or better still let them know on SoundCloud.
They have just recently joined Twitter so get following beethum here
