Ravenhall - Single Review: My Love

28 Jun 2017 // A review by butch181
The artwork for this single is actually a bit out of place. It gives a more intense rock appearance than what the track provides. While the musicians in question have experience in heavier music, they have traded it all in for a more wholesome sound.

My Love is a quintessential example of what makes a popular song. With a run time of less than four minutes, My Love has a soft acoustic sound, with a country twang to it. Joe Ravenhall excels at clean, intricate finger-work on the guitar, while Chris Brebner adds a certain huskiness to their sound. The track is simple and mellow, with soothing svelte vocals that instills a sense of peacefulness and tranquility.

My Love has a mix of folk, soul, and country styles that create an upbeat, feel good "summer" hit you can tap your foot to.
 

About Ravenhall

Following the rise and fall of a few incarnations, Joe Ravenhall & Chris Brebner found themselves yearning for a simpler style of music. They wished to emulate some of their heroes while producing a new sound, one which encompassed a more wholesome sound. This lead them both back to basics. Simple acoustic music which relies on strong vocal melodies interweaving with intricate guitar.

Fast forward five years and Ravenhall has written over 100 songs in an effort to solidify their sound. This dedication to their craft has resulted in a truly authentic sound which speaks to people intimately. With a preference to record and film their music live as opposed to studio tracks, their music provides authenticity and truth which is missed in many acts today.

You can regularly see Ravenhall performing at live venues throughout Auckland City and the rest of New Zealand.

This Pale Fire - Single Review: Float Out
17 Dec 2018 // by butch181
Float Out is about the process of letting things go, moving forward, learning from your past experiences, growing as a result. As such, the track has an intrinsically emotional weight to it.

Gig Review: Ghost Who Walks @ Anthology Lounge, Auckland - 30/11/2018
06 Dec 2018 // by butch181
Cheers and squeals are let out around Auckland’s Anthology Lounge as The Rubics take to the stage. The six-piece group have been working on making a name for themselves as the groove-makers of the Auckland scene, and from the sound of the audience, they know exactly what they are in for.

Gig Review: 2Cellos @The Civic, Auckland - 3/12/2018
04 Dec 2018 // by butch181
People were abuzz as they filed into The Civic to get to their seats. Many eyes were enjoying the venue itself as one of Auckland’s last remaining atmospheric theatres, with its soft-top design that floats above the auditorium, with stars and clouds that recreate the Southern Hemisphere sky-scape.

Lisa Crawley - Single/Video Review: Baby It's Fine
30 Nov 2018 // by butch181
Lisa Crawley’s latest single Baby It’s Fine is a delightfully unhurried and soulful pop track. Starting with a slow strum of the guitar and an almost acoustic vibe to the bass, there is a slow melancholic edge to the song.
