Brooklyn born American rockers hit back from their mellower, Bowie influenced sound with this up-tempo, indie influenced, floor-filling album.
The new single, ‘April Again’ combines a Kaiser Chiefs meets Mystery Jets feel with catchy guitar riffs and head-rocking electric harmonies which equate to a well worthy single supported by BBC 6 Introducing.
An incessant rolling rhythm is familiar from producer, Justin Craig (known for mixing bands such as MGMT and Vandaveer) and is a key theme throughout Candidate’s second album ‘Psychic Dissonance From The Unself’, Released October 15th 2012. With Craig’s influence, the album is set to become a more commercial and well-known vibe for indie-rock music, especially from the States, appealing to the Brit-rock market.
Progressive to previous tracks, this new sound promises anthemic chants and rhythms coupled with relatable lyrics and coherent melodies. The single ‘April Again’ has already achieved acclaim from publications such as Dingus and New Dust, dubbing them as ‘fresh, fuzzy, lush and psychedelic.’ (New Dust) And ‘a favourite among dual releases.’ (Dingus).
On a personal view, the track is catchy, well written and rolls continuously to make it recognisable among the genre. The band have progressed to create a single likeable by many, and one which offers promise to 2012’s set list. Download it, take a listen, and let the 80’s synth-vibes marry the modern American-rock vocals to create a love-child of psychedelic indie music.
