Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun – ‘A Song About Death’ (Xtra Mile Recordings)

Cheltenham’s Jim Lockey And The Solemn Sun are described as Alt/Folk/Country/Punk or in With Guitars world lets just use the umbrella term Alternative Roots, if that is not confusing BBC Gloucestershire claims a bit of an easy listening tag in a thoroughly modern way, of course. They must train these BBC folk on a diet of Exploited,  Nine Inch Nails at their most furious and to relax to Rage Against The Machine in the green room. No listening to the vocal and lead guitar delivery, this definitely should warrant the moniker of alternative, what and what influences are various. please view the video above and you will get the point.
Released originally on the 14th February the single sadly  failed in terms of a wonderful gift for your loved one, cannot think why. To the single ‘A Song About Death’ gets our collective thumbs up. After all it starts with the lyric, “For My love, somewhere in the pastures, with my body soon be turned to coal” although the song has a strong lyric, it not dark, evoking no goth threads, ‘A Song About Death ‘is more earthy, the guitars are bright, the lyric thumped out, the overall result oh a song that we will come back to time and time again. 7.5/10
