Brenda - Untitled EP (2006).
Thanks to the guys for the CD. Four tracks on this one;
This is miles away from the vast majority of rock I normally listen
to, but I like it a lot. Great dynamics throughout, well produced
and always involving. Should appeal to a wide cross section of indie
and rock fans.
- Last Tape. Choppy opening riff with quality
basswork. The rest of the track alternates between indie and
mellower laid back sections. Great dynamics, quality opener
with superb vocals.
- Blue Prints. Radio tuning/interference is
used for both the intro and outro. Overall feel is indie meets
trip hop but with real drums! Slow song, very laid back and
- Architectures. Another slow intro, has a
Portishead feel but with male vocals. Speeds up for a while
and the three guitarists work off each other well. Generally
a subdued track, minimalist sections are delicately handled.
Long song, skilfully executed.
- Sub Rosa. Brooding low-key intro which is
very stark. Has a feel of New Order/Joy Division with a smattering
of Sisters of Mercy thrown in for good measure. Opens out into
a heavy, multi-layered indie section which works phenomenally
well. Drumming is excellent, the production picking up the snare
