Tealskie - Single Review: Flown Away

18 Feb 2023 // A review by Danica Bryant

Otautahi alt rock band Tealskie debut with their fresh track Flown Away, a sweeping ballad which highlights a clear cohesion and tight musical interplay within the group.

Sharp, rushing guitar grooves open the track, met with clashing percussion and subtle yet effective bass. It's a psychedelic journey of a song constantly introducing fresh new melodies. Lead singer Rebekah Pemberton holds it together with simple, controlled vocals, broken up by these harrowing instrumentals. Lyrically, she covers moving on from a painful life experience and accepting the healing journey. Each line is direct and plain. But paired with the focused, complex instrumentation, it's given a new sense of emotion.

However, at times the mix makes the words tough to make out, which is disappointing given the song's clear intent to focus on feeling. The dynamic build in its latter half is its shining moment, exploding into a wall of warbling electric guitars and thrashing drums.

Flown Away is a promising track for Tealskie. If this song is anything to go by, their future work will be a welcome path of invention in the Kiwi rock scene.

Rating: ( 4 / 5 )
