First off this is a solid band, unified in sound and execution of this particular tune. Slowhound‘s epic swells and crests blend alternative rock melodies with pop vocal, carried along with the pulse of power bass and tom drums. This is a well-rounded composition.
Softer and dreamier than America’s Paramore; but in that same vein, with a taste of Norway’s Highasakite blissful power ballads. This is one of those tunes you push repeat and listen to over and over again, discovering something new in each nuance of octave and chord change. I’m anxious to see where R51 will go with this.
