These guys are great. I've heard the songs "Look Up" and "War Machine." The lead singer's voice sounds like a cross between Liam Gallagher and Neil Finn, and the guitars in both songs sound reminiscent of Crowded House.
So picture jimmy and tpl's personal artist Reynor Serafin listening to the first mix's of the cd and brainstorming over a nice bottle of moonambell wine. There were some deep dark windy roads our twisted skulls lead us down. Until we started on the topic of Gypsy, and how the main hook in the song is ye old christmas carroll 'we three kings'. Heading down the biblical path of who the three kings were and why the hell they would give someone gold, frankincense and myrrh we discover that the three kings are also a star constellation which is 3 stars in a line. Zoom out for a bit and you find the tree kings are actually the belt on Orion. Orion's belt. So Orion was a actually a hunter and there we have our hunting theme for our cover staring you in the face. you just zoom out to see the bigger picture!!!!
'The Banquet', is a six track, Indie Pop-Rock album. The Genre "Indie" is or has become a Powerful Alternative Venue to the Mainstream Music Industry and as such as made Famous Artists such as, Aberdeen, The Eames Era, The Beat Movement,Acid House Kings, Bella and Beat Crusaders--the list goes on... My Point is the Power and Feelings that are evoked in this Album easily rank, This Public Life as a Peer those Indie Artists who have achieved a measure of commercial success. Track #4. 'Gypsy', Features a Minor Chord Driven Rock Voice with Vibrant Electric Guitar. Listeners who are paying attention with hear a snippet of the Traditional Christmas Carol- 'We Three Kings'. The Wise Men were a kind of Gypsy if you think about it... :D The Song is NOT a Non-Traditional Carol but a Hard Hitting, Melancholy Rock Ballad. Track #1. 'Smile', Starts the Album with Power Pop and really the Sound Rivals anything Mainstream is airing Top 40 Radio Rotation. Listen for a well Delivered Lyrics( Male Vocals-but not exactly Boy Band Style) which are Articulate and Eloquent in the story they tell. The Instrumentation is more Pop than Rock with High Energy Guitar, Electric Bass and Percussion pumping out a Dance(able)Beat. Overall, Good Power Pop with an Excellently Structured Rock Foundation.
