Etheran - Single Review: Let Me Go

12 Feb 2019 // A review by Andrew Smit

Opening with a formidable power riff this debut track from Christchurch based Etheran really grabs you by the throat, and it's a track that has many shades. The strong melodic verses that are sung by the clean voice of lead singer Lita Macabeo is smooth and wholesome, whereas the chorus sections burst with scolding vocals and a burst of drums that lifts the power and emotion with great intensity.

After the power chorus we fall back to the tuneful verses sung by Lita, with nice segments that harmonise effortlessly to a guitar lick. These pockets of gentrified passages lead perfectly to the more metal inspired sections that ultimately takes us back to the awesome guitar riff that started the track.

All in all, it’s a thoughtful and unique mix of styles that works surprisingly well, undoubtedly a killer song live, so turn it up and check it out.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
 

About Etheran

Etheran was formed in 2016 by Wade Sloper while he was attending Jazz School in Christchurch. Wade brought in Travis Brett following his time at Vision College (Chch NZ) and upon meeting Isaac Peneha at Jazz School promptly enlisted his services.

After jamming in a bedroom for about 6 months Lita Macebeo, a friend of all 3 members was brought in to handle vocal duties and following a year of polishing and writing songs the band started actively gigging in the Christchurch scene in mid 2018.

fleaBITE - Album Review: Bite Me
04 Dec 2018 // by Andrew Smit
Finally, there is a children’s album that you can chomp into with glee, fleaBITE are the band and Bite Me is the album, and it's full of surprises, where every song is like a bursting musical festival. As a father of two young ones I have had many hours listening to albums full of standard nursery rhyming fair that after a couple of repeats would start to affect your sanity.

Chris William - EP Review: Out of Sight
18 Sep 2018 // by Andrew Smit
Out of Sight is an EP with 10 very easy on the ear compositions, with gentle serenading tunes, accompanied by Chris William's velvet vocals that glide on deft orchestral arrangements. You're struck by the clear and crisp tones of the instrumentation, there is piano, a cello, lots of orchestral keys, and they are all compelled forward nicely with modern beats.

Vallé - Single Review: Love Me
17 Aug 2018 // by Andrew Smit
After a short and dreamy musical intro, the rap begins and it’s an assured and clear rap, and Vallé's Love Me sounds sublime. The classic syncopation of rhythm and rhyme is performed with a cool style, but it's also intense and stirring.

Scott MCB - Single/Video Review: In Your Mind
26 Jun 2018 // by Andrew Smit
A tenderly plucked guitar leads to some nice rhythmic strums, which is then united with a suitably soothing vocal, it’s a nice start that presents well the songs musical quality. In your Mind is a beautiful sounding song that also delivers a clear message, a message that many will find heartening to see presented as it is in the music video.

Shady Brain Farm - Album Review: 19 Years In The Same House
05 Jun 2018 // by Andrew Smit
A most wonderful album full of songs laden with a unique and funky mix of rock and blues. Opening with a most funky bass line, Get Up Get Down pumps up the vibe and demands that you do indeed get up and get down, such is the energy and feeling it generates.

Gig Review: Royal Blood @ Logan Campbell Centre - 01/05/2018
03 May 2018 // by Andrew Smit
The Logan Campbell Centre has seen many years of great rock acts like Nirvana and Metallica and tonight the well-worn 70's decor was rocked by Royal Blood's first headline shows in New Zealand. Dead Favours were up first to warm the crowd, which was pretty much at capacity, this four-piece Auckland band have impressed and progressed steadily over the last two years since I saw them at their debut gig back in May 2016.
