Eujenics – Far Stranger

eujenics_RingMasterReview

The first release from the band since a slight line-up change, British alternative rock quartet Eujenics show things are just as potent as ever in songwriting and sound. To be truthful, Far Stranger suggests that the Sunderland hailing band has hit a new plateau in both as it provides a powerful and magnetic slice of fiery rock ‘n’ roll.

No strangers to increasing acclaim through previous releases, especially the Humanism EP and following single Alec Guinness earlier this year, and live exploits over the past year which have seen successful shows with the likes of Dead!, Despite My Deepest Fear, Edenthorn, Massa Confusa, and Deadfire, the 2015 formed Eujenics are ready to take things to the next level in creativity and attention sparked.

Far Stranger soon reveals a new depth and intensity to the band’s creativity and imagination and also answers in quick time how new member, vocalist/guitarist Sam Avery will fit the band’s distinctive sound. With sublime ease is the rapid realisation, his melodic tones and harmonious expression the perfect and natural replacement to previous singer Nic Wood. Equally though, as the song finishes coaxing ears with its sinewy entrance led by the heavy swings of drummer Adam Hay, Avery establishes his own vocal character and dynamism backed by the band and matched by the flirtatious bassline cast by David Scott and Chris Hanna’s just as virulent grooves.

Hooks and rhythms continue to collude as the song reveals itself the band’s most virulent and feistily catchy proposal yet; teasing with essences surely Queens Of The Stone Age/Kyuss seeded throughout yet quickly breeding its own identity and individual adventure.

Big and bold, ballsy and boisterous, Far Stranger is Eujenics scaling new heights to unavoidably ignite the spirit of fans and newcomers alike.

Far Stranger is to be released 30th September.

Eujenics – Alec Guinness

eujenics_RingMasterReview

Having already given the year a striking event with the release of their acclaimed debut EP, Humanism, British alternative rock band Eujenics have quickly backed it up with new single Alec Guinness. Their most forceful and dynamic track yet, which is going some such the quality of said EP and previous singles, the release is a rousing and fiery slice of rock ‘n’ roll from a band it is becoming increasingly easy to suggest real success lies ahead for.

Hailing from Sunderland, Eujenics formed in 2015 and quickly stirred up eager attention with their first pair of singles. Together the September and December respectively released Meniscus and Kalashnikov provided a potent and attention grabbing introduction to the quartet, though it was as part of the four-track Humanism EP uncaged this past February , that they really helped ignite a new wave of eager acclaim and new fans. Live too, Eujenics has become an eagerly praised and sought proposition, sharing stages with bands such as Dead!, Despite My Deepest Fear, Edenthorn, Massa Confusa, and Deadfire over the past months.

Now it is Alec Guinness ready to make a striking impact and follow its predecessors in luring strong radio play around the country. Straight away it has ears and imagination lured as vocalist Nic Wood melancholically sighs alone. His emotive coaxing is soon engulfed with pungent rhythms and growling riffs though, his expression continuing to ooze emotive angst as the tenaciously anthemic beats of Adam Hay grip and tendrils of bluesy guitar entwine the senses. In the belly of it all as the song shares its roar, there is also a virulent rumble with the pulsating resonance of David Scott’s  prowling bass in prime position as guitarist Chris Hanna weaves an evocative and often incendiary tapestry of blues, stoner, and psych rock imagination.

The first single from a new upcoming EP, the track is quite irresistible; as antagonistic as it is seductive, as ferocious as it is dramatically flirtatious and as suggested a track to really put Eujenics on the radar of many more. Alec Guinness, man and song, continues to be one mighty inspiration.

Alec Guinness is available now @ https://eujenics.bandcamp.com/track/alec-guinness

Eujenics – Humanism EP

Eujenics_RingMaster Review

Two singles last year alerted ears to the creative prowess and imagination feeding adventure of UK alternative rockers Eujenics, songs which laid the seeds to eager attention upon the newly formed Sunderland band. Now together with a pair of new offerings they form debut EP Humanism, a powerful confirmation of the potential in those early tracks further charged with a greater fire of sound and impassioned intensity.

Formed in 2015, Eujenics quickly made an impact last September with debut single Meniscus, a mark quickly reinforced by its successor Kalashnikov two months later and a potent live presence which has seen them already share stages with the likes of Dead!, Despite My Deepest Fear, Edenthorn, Massa Confusa, and Deadfire. From Humanism alone it is easy to sense and suspect that 2016 is going to be a big year for the striking band, a time of big steps and rewards and an increase in expectations upon them such the impressive broad introduction to the band for a great many more by their EP.

art_RingMaster ReviewLooking at those two aforementioned singles alone within Humanism, it provides a powerful and rousing proposal to get the teeth into. Meniscus immediately entwines ears in a strand of sonic temptation with guitarist Chris Hanna’s bait a spicy coaxing on its own but becoming even more powerful once aligned to the gnarly tone of David Scott’s bass and the rapier like swipes of drummer Adam Hay. The early grooves only seem to escalate in enticement and alluring drama as the climate of the song becomes sonically muggier, vocalist Nic Wood lighting it with his angst soaked tones and expression. There is an air of bands like Manic Street Preachers and Mind Museum to the increasingly eventful and dynamic roar of the song and release, and a contagion to its heart and character which is inescapable. The track is superb and very easy to see why it made such a potent impact last year.

Kalashnikov is an even darker and more rapaciously intensive offering which starts with the predacious growl of the bass as it steps into view. Beats soon begin to stalk the senses too as a sonic mist brews and subsequently erupts in a blaze of acidic tendrils and melodic magnetism. As emotion oozes from the delivery of Woods, things relax a touch but boil again as a tempestuous climate and presence emerges. For all its volatile nature though, catchiness flirts from its gait and the grouchy but inviting hooks which line the outstanding explosive roar of sound and emotion.

Both tracks hint at stoner-esque hues which certainly come to the surface of Culled. It is a fiery canter revelling in a heavy rock ‘n’ roll breeding though in no time it provides its own individual emotion drenched drama through masterfully blending evocative melodies and aggressive angst into its striking sound and body. The further into its creative bellow the more virulently infectious and resourcefully unpredictable it becomes, ending on a finale which leaps at the listener to get the body physically involved.

The last song to explore on the EP is Eviscerate, a track seemingly nurtured from the same seeds as Kalashnikov such its dark intensive bass led start but quickly revealing its own swampy smog of sonic enticement with a touch of fellow Brits, Morass Of Molasses to it. As compelling as anything upon Humanism, it is also the most intimidating in weight and intensity without defusing the strength of the sonic tempting and melodic tenacity which as much as anything sears songs in to the psyche.

If you have already been greedy with Eujenic’s first pair of songs then the EP will only elevate the excitement and enjoyment so far felt whilst for newcomers, Humanism is a major alert to one of the most exciting bands to emerge in British rock ‘n’ roll this past year or so.

The Humanism EP is released February 13th at a launch show at the Independent in Sunderland. Also playing will be Waste Of Space, Grayce., and PussyWillowFurryVenus. Tickets are £4 and available from the bands or at http://eujenics.bigcartel.com/

Eujenics – Kalashnikov

Eujenics_RingMaster Review

With their debut single Meniscus, UK alternative rock band Eujenics announced themselves as a potential fuelled and seriously striking proposition. It was a song bulging with emotive textures within a pungent atmosphere of provocative craft and fiery imagination; an impressive incitement breeding intrigue and an eager appetite for more. Its successor Kalashnikov has now been unleashed to confirm all thoughts and suggestions arisen about the band whilst uncovering another aspect to their increasingly gripping sound.

Hailing from Sunderland, the quartet consists of vocalist Nic Wood, guitarist Chris Hanna, bassist David Scott, and drummer Adam Hay. Since forming earlier this year, Eujenics has of course made their introduction through the September released single Meniscus and backed it up with shows at the O2 Academy and Bannerman’s, with another on the immediate horizon at Trillians. The last track’s success also saw it being featured on Nick Robert’s BBC Radio Newcastle show and listed as Amazing Radio’s track of the week, a reaction easy to Kalashnikov initially emulating before pushing things on again.

The new single opens on a delicious earthy and predatory bassline from Scott, the beats of Hay soon in tandem with a similar stalking to their presence. In no time the song is ablaze with a wall of stoner-esque, rapaciously heavy enterprise from Hanna, a melodic suggestiveness also swiftly springing from his endeavour as the enticingly volatile delivery of Wood completes the arousing incitement on ears and emotions. As with the last single, there is a raw scent of Manic Street Preachers to the encounter, and the emotive tenacity of Mind Museum, though the track is a far more dynamic and explosively tempestuous encounter which suggests possible inspiration from a Therapy? or Reuben.

The track continues to be a fire of physical and emotional angst, skilfully crafted and layered to make a thick impact from start to finish. Eujenics again impresses as they build another almost tsunami like roar of creative drama and persuasion within Kalashnikov. The band is currently working on their first EP scheduled for release March 2016, anticipation of which is now inflamed thanks to Kalashnikov as well as its previous fellow protagonist.

Kalashnikov is out now and available as a free download @ https://soundcloud.com/eujenics

Eujenics – Meniscus

David Gunton Photography

David Gunton Photography

Making their introduction with a roaring bang, UK alternative rock band Eujenics have just released their debut single Meniscus, a track potent enough to alone suggest there is something rather tasty emerging from within the musical heart of Sunderland.

There is not a great deal we can reveal about Eujenics this time around but it is hard to imagine that they will not be offering more heavily flavoursome propositions ahead through which we can eagerly explore them more. Right now we know they are a quintet which formed this past March and made their live debut at The Academy in Newcastle to, by all accounts, a rapturous crowd. Fair to say they have stirred up a strong and loyal following already and now, with their first EP scheduled for February next year alongside a full UK tour, Eujenics is setting about laying the seeds for national awareness of their thickly enticing sound with Meniscus.

A great opening snarl of guitar with spicy grooving attached is quickly met by a just as tasty and gnarly bass proposal. It is magnetic stuff which continues as the song settle into its controlled but fiery stroll led by the swiftly enticing vocals of Nic Wood. Guitarists Chris Hanna and David Oswin continue to offer antagonistic riffs against heavily alluring grooves, the latter seeming to inspire a swagger in the confrontational attitude of the rhythms uncaged by bassist David Scott and drummer Chris Hall.

Every turn seems to bring a new line of imagination with each more fascinating and gripping than the last, culminating in a passage which is dominated by the predatory bass and the dark spoken tones of Wood. It is a moment which just puts the icing on the thrilling cake. Across the track this kind of invention and impassioned energy does spark thoughts of bands like Manic Street Preachers and Mind Museum but they are whispers in something already emerging as distinct to an attention grabbing band and song.

We reckon checking out Eujenics is a done deal for you all, though when you get a first bite this good the wait for the next nibble can seem a lifetime so be warned.

Meniscus is out now as a free download.
