Fracture is the new video single from British post hardcore quartet Everyday Sidekicks and a track which venomously growls as it grips ears in a pleasing tempest of sound and emotion.
Towards the end of last year, the Bristol hailing band released The Things I’ve Seen EP, an encounter which certainly pleased with the potential of bigger and stronger things to come the lingering emotion. Fracture realises some of that promise, the track a rousing and imaginative confrontation revealing the swift growth of the band’s sound since emerging in 2012, debut single Hometown Hero two years later, and indeed since that last EP. The years have seen the foursome of vocalist Archie Hatfield, guitarist Tim Brown, bassist Sam Hughes, and drummer Mat Capper earning a potent reputation for their live shows, which have included sharing stages with ands such as Marmozets, Shvpes, and Coldrain, and praise from the likes of Rock Sound, Metal Hammer, and Powerplay Magazine. Fracture suggests a new chapter in their ascent and continuing plaudits will be no surprise.
The single descends on ears in a wall of thumping rhythms and climactic riffs, both wrapped in melodic intrigue before things settle down into a groove infested swing fluidly broken up by the blend of harsh and clean vocals as well as a web of suggestive enterprise from the guitar of Brown. The intensity and power unleashed by Hughes and Capper is formidable; almost merciless at times as they drive the song forward but always respectful of the ‘gentler’ aspects of the track and its varied dynamics.
As yet, the Everyday Sidekicks sound is not the most unique but Fracture shows an individuality to the band which is equally as big a step forward as the imagination involved. Everyday Sidekicks left satisfaction behind with The Things I’ve Seen EP, Fracture leaves an excited pleasure with the suggestion of plenty more to come.
Fracture is out now.
