Back and to the Left – Misguided

a0019133581_10OK, I admit confusion here. I listened to this competent track on Bandcamp from which I lined to the artist’s/artists’ Twitter which gave the bio as an 18 year old from Loughbrickland studying film. Then I jumped to Facebook where one became three – Adam MacDonald, Michael Gordon and Peter Brown from Banbridge to be precise. I cannot really name who wrote this track but it does boast a fairly strong melody and is well produced. In particular I was drawn to the great vocal harmonies.

The lyrics are emotionally direct and perhaps a little bit of metaphor would not have gone astray but they go well with the melancholy melody. A brave effort. I would certainly be interested in hearing a longer release by this guy/these guys. Eve Williams,
