The thing with The Wildhearts though, it caused a massive family argument at the time, because I heard my sister playing this cassette tape and remember saying to her “Oh I like this band as well” and of course her first response was “you’re not allowed to like them as well. This is MY band.”
With a punk spirit and a take-no-shit attitude Hey! Hello! are an ultra-catchy noise pop group armed with a truck full of great tunes.
The Pop/Rock sensation from Down Under is back: Dion Bayman came out of nowhere in 2013 with his album “Smoke & Mirrors”, which surprised and impressed me very much back then, so it was easy for Dion to end up in my top list of the best albums last year. Just one year later Mr. Bayman reaches for the stars again with his new record “Afterburn” on September 23rd.
2013 is great! I’ve received numerous nominations for Words Left Unsaid including the Artists In Music Awards, Hollywood Music In Media Awards, LA Music Awards and Indie Music Channel Awards.
Musically the band is more akin to Seether and Breaking Benjamin, though they’re far heavier than either of those groups. Not to take anything away from the band, this is 100% Lzzy Hales’ vehicle.
A case of seemingly loosing track of any unknown not mistaken identity. I don’t think the band wanted to sound like this, I mean their Gothic laden tunes are fine, but when they switch from a ballad, to a downer folky tune in “Queen of the Night” it tends to loose interest in the listening experience.
