Showbizheroes: 21


    21 is the new single from UK indie rockers Showbizheroes, a band who has already earned strong acclaim and following through their previous trio of releases. Taken from their forthcoming debut album, Tales From Behind The Curtain, the new single is an engaging and inviting encounter to ensure their album is a release which will gain plenty of interest.

The fresh helping of alternative rock which the band has served up as led to the likes of early Muse, Queens of the Stoneage and Mansun being spoken as comparisons, something which 21 does suggest is fair in varying degrees but there is a distinct singularity about their sound which equally defies those references almost as much. This makes for music which intrigues and satisfies with a vibrant breath and creative imagination, a sound also very easy to return to.

The dulled jangle of melodies from the discord dripping keys opens up the song wonderfully with the soon following expressive vocals and resonating slow plod of the bass as well as tight drum snaps expanding the instant lure of the track. Soon settling into an energetic stride with a sense of urgency, the song spreads its contagion around the ear like a warm wind to draw the listener deeper into its persuasive breath. Arguably once into its full sail of sound and intent the song loses some of the temptation unearthed at its start and through selected restrained moments, but its incessant pull is never diminished enough to exhaust the want to stay within, and the pleasure gained from, its company.

21 leaves no other option than but to further check out Tales From Behind The Curtain and to keep a close hungry ear upon Showbizheroes as they continue to create magnetic appealing indie rock pop.
