We are delighted here at Netsounds Unsigned to be joined by the land’s newest music critic. He has a genuine thirst for new music, he won’t review anything he doesn’t like but has promised he will deliver a fair and honest review.
Some say… He can play guitar with his moustache and that he can open a beer bottle with his testes… All we know is he’s called Sir Frankie Crisp!
Silver Coast – Believe
‘Believe’ invites us to engage, firstly in the difficult reflection period of events gone by and then ushers us euphorically to the realisation that someone absent has been worthy of a while spent soul searching, and that old Achilles heel, trust… Be strong brother!!
The intro, a delicate (and somewhat long) jangle is shoved out of the way, not so delicately but rather nicely, to pounding drums building up a heart rate and expectations of a more punch the air (my da’s harder than you’re da!) vocal that aims for the anthem tag in the billing. It doesn’t in this case. The tracks duration may have been a burden upon their shoulders and this becomes evident midway with the band finding a way to fill up time rather than fulfil the tins value.
The four walls of a recording studio can sometimes fail to justify. Silver Coast, I must stress, have only been together since 2012 which goes with the suggestion that they are within their infancy as a recording quartet. However, they ain’t so shy of a gig or 2 (including support slots for King Charles and Fatherson). I have every faith they deliver this number to true effect live and I leave their schedule for you all to take a little look at them doing so.
Thank you and yes… The pleasure was all yours.
Sir Frankie Crisp
