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.

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

Upcoming live show: Trillians, Newcastle December 15th 2015

Eujenics – Meniscus

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.
