Following their widely acclaimed album, You Said, which enmeshes a psychedelic feel to the Tumbler’s style of rock ‘n’ roll, the British alternative rock/folk act are bring to you with their brand new project a retrospective album filled with a classic rock vibe in their latest release, Come to the Edge.
The album opens with the track, “Black Sheep”, which is a bluesy and gritty song that is un-afraid to rock. Parts of the track has a lullaby feel juxtaposed with guitar riffs and reverberations that will conjure a crooked and lonely state in life. The garage rock sound has a soulful vibe that will take listeners to different places and mindsets. With a grainy quality over the recording, the sound will remind audiences of oldies from the 60’s.
The second track, “Don’t Take Much,” is a pop song with a beachy feel. Again, there is that grainy quality that was mentioned before along with an indie-rock and pop flow that was not there before. There is a melodic pop quality to this track with its contagious hooks and jovial sound. The carefree lyrics and peaceful message will wipe out the edge that was there for the first track. This is an infectious pop track with its upbeat quality and highly enthused playing.
Tracks like “Nothing to Hold You” and “Sweetest Thing” leaves you with a sense of nostalgia as the riveting storytelling takes listeners away to distant places. Both songs are washed with an oldies cadence with happy-go-lucky tunes that leaves you in a cheery sort of mood. The tracks carry with them a sound filled with warmth and great vibrations. While songs like “Winter Cold Heart,” “Joanne” and “Dial” follow a more wintry and darker course.
The depth of these songs with its smattering of genres from upbeat and enthused pop, alternative rock, folk and garage rock showcase a number of melodically lit tunes. From a great beat and excitable vocals to daring guitar riffs, legions of fans will flock to this release. An entirely new following will come forth for this latest release, with a dazzling new sound that will entice many. 7.8/10
