Big, bold, and drenched in just as sizeable passion, Explosions the new single from UK rock band Peur is one stirring and dramatic proposition. It is not a song which bursts with open originality yet its thick textures and melodic enterprise make for an invigorating and fresh adventure which leaves only the healthiest appetite for song and band.
Hailing out of Manchester in the early days of 2013, Peur spent their first year drawing increasing attention and support through their emerging sound, impassioned live performances, and well –received debut single Anarchy. Backed by an equally potent video, the track was the teaser to bigger things in the shape of the band’s acclaimed We Can Build Astronauts EP also last year. The success of the release took Peur’s presence beyond the local scene, attracting attention across the UK whilst one of its tracks, Persued By Bears ignited the ears of Korn guitarist Munky. It is easy to expect Explosions to breed an even greedier spotlight such its rampant blaze of heavy and melodic rock tinged with melodic metal and bordering on punk tenacity. Time will tell but certainly the single will take the trio of Joe Lomax (guitar/vocals), Ryan Greenhalgh (bass/vocals) and Sam Tempest (drums/percussion) to broader recognition.
Explosions opens as its titles suggest, erupting in ears with thumping beats and grouchy riffs cored by a dark throated bassline. There is a definite Queens Of The Stone Age feel to the start which persists throughout but it is soon tempered as vocals emotively roar and the skilled melodic adventure of the song casts its intrigue. It is a fiery mix with a predatory hunger fuelling the rhythmic side of the track, bass and drums baiting ears with uncompromising temptation whilst guitars and voice colour their imposing web. As suggested there is a familiarity to the track but it only spices up a pungent and voracious bellow of a song which without reserve ignites ears and passions swiftly and persistently.
With a tinge of Foo Fighters, Reuben, and 28 Days to its air too, Explosions is a thrilling stomp of a song, another excuse to wax lyrical about one exciting emerging band, whilst the single is the perfect way to get in on the ground floor of an easy to expect eventful ascent for Peur.
