Leading into the release of their debut album Cutting Strings on September 24th UK power pop band Streetfight Silence first unleash the single We Must All Learn. Their first release for Angry Badger Records, the song is a vibrant and enterprising slice of pop rock to play as a tease for their imminent album.
The Bracknell based trio of Russ Merry (guitar/vocals), Chris Penfold (bass/vocals), and Chrissy Cooley (drums/vocals) has garnered a strong and passionate following, conquering locally before working on the country as a whole. Their live performances have drawn acclaim as the band shared stages with the likes of Don Broco, Tesseract, Burn The Fleet, Francesqa, Canterbury, Flood Of Red, and We Caught The Castle, each show adding to the buzz around them. The new single and album to come, follows their well received debut EP and look to have all the weaponry to thrust the band into wider recognition.
We Must All Learn initially sidles up to the ear with bright melodic strokes and attention grabbing grooved strikes underpinned by a great heavy bass tone and firm rhythms. Once into its stride the vocals spread their warm and accomplished tones amongst the reasonably reserved sounds, every element then coming together in a chorus of natural harmonies and creative sounds. The song is not overly infectious but does secure a permanent focus and leave lingering strains of melodic craft in its wake. There is also a strong acoustic essence to the song within the energetic rush of tight guitar play and expressive vocals which suggests more of the album.
With a video to accompany it, We Must All Learn is a good appetiser for Cutting Strings and a good continuation of the creative maturity of Streetfight Silence, which the album should endorse and extend.
