SirenBlue is a well talented, creative and awesome bunch of souls who are based in the UK. Having the true faith towards music they have released some amazing tracks with a unique blend of power pop and indie rock. “Every Other Weekend” is another magnificent track that you are about to listen to and this whole thing will sweep away all your negative moods within a second.
The musicality throughout is vibrant and forever interesting, even minimal on occasion – falling away almost entirely at certain moments. On top of this, there’s an inherent sense of emotion at precisely the moments that require a little humanity and realness. The arrangement of the “Every Other Weekend”builds you up effectively to this point. It’s an unpredictable fusion of tracks, as stated earlier, but it works beautifully. The concept is exciting, being all at once familiar and fresh – recognisable yet new.
The structure of this song presents a number of changes throughout that come as quite refreshing and notably unpredictable. There are moments of complete calm, instrumental minimalism, vocal intimacy – where your focus is entirely on the lyrics and the honesty of the writing. Then in contrast, there are rising moments of intensity, sudden shifts in melody, vibrant bursts of instrumentation that are matched and supported by the singer’s flawless ability to perform at either end of the spectrum.
There’s a really good sense of balance within the release, and that makes it work well. The crucial elements of songwriting and composition have been incorporated, so the sound is effective – professional, crisp, warm, smooth, enjoyable. On top of this though, there are just enough flickers of individuality and flair to make it really stand out – it becomes instantly memorable, recognisable. SirenBlue’s sound is one that is likely to draw listeners in from all musical preferences – for the skill, the style, the enjoyment. Hopefully it keeps them coming back again and again for future releases and live shows.
Comparisons aren’t necessary; the songwriting is there, the riffs are there, the vocal is strong and suitably raspy, the bass and the beat surround you like a beautifully loud cloak of escapism. Don’t listen to this music with the volume turned down. It’s an insult to artistry. Turn it up loud.
