Gentle guitar lines and backing vocals intertwine to form a track that wouldn¹t be out of place alongside the likes of Fleet Foxes – Tom Robinson¹s Fresh On The Net
When We Melodise is a beautiful construction of melodic strumming, oscillating drumming and glorious harmonies sure to appeal to fans of Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver. Indie Shuffle
Volcanoes are a Yorkshire based alternative/indie band consisting of Sam, Kev, Boa and Chris. Having already had interest from EMI, V2 and Fourteenth Floor Recordings, taking part in T4 Orange Unsigned, and having finished in the top 20 of the Glastonbury Emerging Talent contest, the boys are finally ready to release their much anticipated new single When We Melodise.
A mix between Simon and Garfunkel, Midlake, The Shins and Echo And The Bunnymen, When We Melodise is a treat for every ear and rewards more active listening than the standard indie song.
The arrangement is soft and contained yet otherworldly at the same time. By carefully interlinking the main and backing vocals and letting them flow over one another, Volcanoes combine both the familiar and the new in a very musical manner. The demonstrative use of strings pulsating confidently in the background creates an extra dimension to the open body of sound. It also compliments their soft harmonies echoing throughout the track and adding oxygen to the overall listening experience.
When We Melodise is carefully crafted but sounds neither controlled nor regulated. Gentle guitar picking, resonating drums and hummable melodies underline the fact that Volcanoes understand how to capture beauty in one innovative song. Don¹t believe me? Just hear for yourself.
When We Melodise will be available for sale and download 9th of March and is taken from the Volcanoes¹ debut album Radiogeist to be released later this year.
