Sometimes it’s easy to feel like every song muse is exactly the same, with everything being about love, loss, or something incredibly close. So it’s a delight, then, to hear the talents of The Micro Band, who were able to pen a complete banger all from one of their members experiencing a brain seizure in the cold food aisle of a supermarket.
Right from the off, there’s a brilliantly riff-tastic nature to this number; a gorgeous guitar line waltzes up and down the fretboard like a globetrotter before being reinforced by some gutsy basswork to give it a beautiful punch. The verse vocal melodies here are a joy to hear with earworms abound, and this song really wouldn’t be out of place in the background of your favourite TV advertisement, primed and ready to have you humming it on a loop for the rest of the day.
Don’t get too comfy, though. Brutal stops and stabs usher in the chorus of Bridge of Eden with a bang and really get the listener to sit up and pay attention, accompanied by an expansive wall of vocals that we are sure will be echoed right back at the band once the world opens up again and gigs can resume. Interestingly, even though you know it’s coming, the second chorus hits just as hard and the adrenaline it sends coursing through your veins becomes almost tangible.
The Micro Band have proven with this release that they don’t just make music to be heard – they make music to be felt.
I strongly urge you to give them a listen as soon as you can.
