I missed these guys the first time around when they released their self-titled debut back in 2007, but a quick scour of the interwebs shows that it was a pretty well received album all around and there seemed to be plenty of folks anticipating this new release. Without hearing the bands previous work I have nothing to directly compare it to, but one thing I will say is that I like what I am hearing on T.V & GAMES a lot and can definitely see what all of the fuss is about.

The album definitely has a modern rock feel to it, showing off similarities to bands like BUSH and THREE DAYS GRACE, but there’s also an air of weathered-ness about the sound that also allows for some more classic influences from bands like SOUNDGARDEN and ALICE IN CHAINS. Think early nineties hard rock polished up with a modern day sheen. The vocal work here really makes the album sounding like a less accented version of Gavin Rossdale mixed with SOMETHING FOR KATE vocalist Paul Dempsey…It’s a good combination that allows for some really moody soundscapes and emotive singing that gives some of these songs a truly deep and personal feeling. The band also uses a slightly different setup than most and rather than have a second guitarist they have a full time violinist and cellist. They also utilize the thick sounds of a stand-up double-bass too. Admittedly for all of the different instruments involved the music still has a pretty standard and common sound in places, but it must make for an awesome stage show .

Personal favourites for me where UNTIL THE END, PROMISED LAND and SLAVE, but I think if mainstream modern rock radio got its hands on tracks like GOODBYE or HEY BOY then DEEP TRIP could become breakout stars. In fact, these guys really do have a feel about them that they are right on the fringe of worldwide success just waiting for a small push to go all the way, so do yourself a favour and get on these guys now, their next album may well just be backed by a major label.
