Tryonics - Single Review: Hey

08 Feb 2022 // A review by Darryl Baser

Tryonics is the solo project of Hap Richardson, formerly of My Little Pony, Go Victim and Freezer Child.

And that’s about there is to know about Tryonics, apart from a growing catalogue of tunes.

The latest in the tune in the one man band’s catalogue, and it’s a dead-set banger, simply called Hey.

The song starts as it continues, with an up-tempo groove, and a solid back-beat at more than 100 bpm, angular guitars spasm and punctuate, sometimes on the ones and threes, sometimes in counterpoint. Hap’s voice is in the mix, not prominent enough to make all the words clear.

You know how pigeon-holing music into categories is odious, well, it is genuinely bloody hard to put this song into a box. If I had to call it anything apart from ‘brilliant’, ‘addictive’ or a ‘banger’, I’d use words like a great blend of up-tempo groove with great smatterings of angular post punk.

It is a song that if radio or the interwebs picked it up it could blow up huge.

At 2:23 long it is the type of song which can easily be played many times in a row.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )

Nigel Parry - Single Review: One Word War
02 Dec 2021 // by Darryl Baser
“Me job to pick off the Hun, In the sights a lad like me, One shot, and I’m alone;” just a few of the lines of this stunning, beautiful and at times harrowing poem based on Nigel Parry’s family history of relations serving in World War I. 7:56 is typically too long for a single, Queen found that out when they first tried to release Bohemian Rhapsody.
