Amber/Locktender | Stream
Amber contributes “Heritage”, an emotionally charged and dark tune reflective of their post-hardcore lineage. It almost broods while Julian's desperate roar tears through anguish and apocalypse. The riffs are relentless and pounding, that fourth beat like a punch in the gut. Melodies soar between the peaks on the track's back half, carrying it skyward beyond the terrestrial.
Locktender also work the post-hardcore angle but do so with a conceptual basis of interpreting the work of (non-musical) artists through their own art. For this release they've chosen Herman Melville's “The Piazza” as the subject. It's a dynamic track working through walls of noise, tender guitar melodies, menacing vocals and heavy-handed aggression.
Each side of this 7” compliments the other by balancing volatility and vulnerability, introspection and outward expression. Why not have a listen for yourself, then head on over and pre-order it!
