Pale Lady - Single Review: Never Satisfied

07 Apr 2022 // A review by River Tucker

2017 Battle Of The Bands national champions Pale Lady have hit another home run with their latest single; Never Satisfied. Contrary to the song title, you can tell these four young guys who hail from Wellington are having shit loads of fun playing this fantastic song.

Marking a significant change away from the bands previous releases, including pop-punk interpretations of well-known classics, Never Satisfied sits gloriously in no man’s land between other commercial and alternative styles. It’s a multifaceted arrangement with excellent tempo and dynamic changes, which provides ample energy to get the crowd up and dancing.

Pale Lady is predominantly a party band and you cannot help but jive to their contagious grooves on display throughout this absolute champ of a track.

Laid back guitar playing during the verses contrasts nicely with upbeat and powerful riffing in choruses, build-ups and other refrains. There’s even a 60's Batman inspired melody thrown in for good measure. Throughout their clinical execution of numerous styles Pale Lady keeps it all together to provide what is a comprehensive and match winning release.

Although keyboards and guitar solos can at times get a bit glam rock chaotic, there’s really not much to be faulted. Make sure you check it out today.

About Pale Lady

Founded in late 2016, Pale Lady consists of four rock fanatics who found themselves in the same music degree. Since then, it has been non stop writing and gigging to bring something new to Rock n Roll. Their music is diverse, with influences both from old school classics and modern rock.

Pale Lady’s sound is characterised by the layered elements and high energy. At a show you can expect to hear catchy vocal melodies, heavy riffs and guitar solos a plenty. Since winning the 2017 National Battle Of The Bands, the band has been working towards upcoming releases. They will bring out new music over the course of 2018, leading up to their Europe tour in August.

Newzerror is a new two-piece band hailing from a small town in Aotearoa New Zealand called Matamata. Anything but small, Rick and Dee’s sound on their debut single You smashes through the ceiling with some straight forward no-nonsense metal sure to get you up and moshing.

All I Seek - Single Review: Envy
05 Aug 2022 // by River Tucker
More than just a progressive Metal band, All I Seek have coalesced many of the best Alt Metal styles around, including at times Melodic Death (with a slight Djent edge) into their rip-roaring third single, Envy.This massive four-minute track fills a gap in New Zealand’s current progressive Metal scene and the juxtaposition of the songs uplifting message, delivered during mid-winter, makes it a very well timed release.

Magnalith - EP Review: Instrumentality
15 Apr 2021 // by River Tucker
If you ever had the inclination to record some music, heading over to Auckland’s LAB studios to lay down some drums is a good way to begin. Not only have they provided Mathew Bosher’s solo release with the depth of sound his chosen genres demand but they also ensure the contagious rhythms on Instrumentality, his debut EP under the moniker Magnalith, have the cut through required to get listener’s fully engaged.

Album Review: Garden Party Riot
24 Nov 2020 // by River Tucker
Garden Party Riot’s self-titled debut album is full of intense energy, odd time signatures and cohesiveness often only found in three-piece bands. But above anything else these nine original tracks are party inducing, which is exactly what we need in this time of doom and gloom.

3000AD - Album Review: The Void
06 Nov 2020 // by River Tucker
For a debut, The Void by 3000 AD is one hell of a kick arse release. Not only does it deliver everything you could ever want from a metal album, elements of punk and thrash will also satisfy the most hardcore head bangers amongst us.
