Pieces Of Molly - Single Review: I Don't Wanna

25 Aug 2022 // A review by [email protected]
Pieces of Molly have been busy beavers, racking up a slew of international and major national support slots to go with their commercial radio play, EPs and single releases. I Don’t Wanna is their latest single, and you can hear influences ranging from Aerosmith to Red Fang, while Jet and The D4 also come to mind.

We are introduced to this “classic-rock-on-speed” sound from the get go. The drum sound explodes out of the speaker, Kurt Fleming opting not to tickle the skins by any stretch of the imagination. The guitars scratch and wail like a caged tiger, Sam Kubiak (rhythm guitar) and Ewen Glasgow (lead guitar/vocals) ensuring any doubts of their guitar hero credibility are burned at the altar as they worship their instruments. The sound is steadfastly upheld and underpinned by Doug Stewart on bass, and you can pretty much smell the sweat and spilt beer of the rock dive bar.

Glasgow shines on vocals; An out and out rock vocalist without question, and contributing to the stadium rock vibe. I Don’t Wanna blasts out of the starting gate like a rabid rhinoceros, before ascending through the pre chorus and chorus - confirming that this is a band capable of composing music that takes its listener on a journey. If you’re a fan of high energy, enthusiastic rock and roll that pulls influence from the entire timeline of the genre, then check out this track and this band.

Jarrod Ross - Single Review: Hail
18 Mar 2022 // by [email protected]
Jarrod Ross, formerly of Pan Am and Valedictions, brings us Hail, a solo effort of the rock variety, born of lockdown conditions. Reminiscent of some of the dreamier aspects of American and British rock of the recent and distant past, Ross’ solo project was a long time plan, enabled by the pandemic.
Ekko Park - Single Review: Breakdown
08 Mar 2022 // by [email protected]
After a phenomenal-yet-pandemic-maligned album release cycle with Horizon, Ekko Park are back with a new single, Breakdown. Ekko Park (Joe Walsh (lead vocals, guitar), Bryan Bell (bass), Nick Douch (drums) and newest addition Jessie Booth (guitar, backing vocals)), are a well-established Auckland rock quartet with an international pedigree and a penchant for hooky tracks of the highest order of quality.

28 Jan 2022 // by [email protected]
East York (Daz Coppins, Tarquin Keys, Zane Rosanoski, Eric Boucher) are an international amalgam of band members hailing from one part of the world, and living in another, with a Kiwi link. If their Origins EP is anything to go by, the band is certainly blessed with an international calibre.

Jadukor - Single Review: Always Yours
09 Jun 2020 // by [email protected]
Jadukor describes himself as "A mysterious magician who is pulling music out of his hat". Working the angle of intrigue can often pay dividends, and this solo artist is attracting plenty of attention with his particular brand of swaggering, alternative rock metal.
