Tiger Lilly – The Story So Far

Swiftly enamoured with the new single from British singer/songwriter Tiger Lilly, we thought we would rather than focus on one slice of goodness take a full look at the album it masterfully concludes and it proved to be a wise and highly rewarding move. The Story So Far brings together a collection of songs echoing her creativity and releases of the past eight years led by that new single, Broken Glass. It is a ‘best of’ offering in many ways but also a highly tempting introduction to new ears and keener attention of one captivating and imaginative artist.

Named at birth Dani, the Tiger Lilly name began as a consequence of being told she was “too dark to be Wendy” when playing Peter Pan in the playground, being tagged as Tiger Lilly. It was just one moment in her experiences of being bullied at school, one spark which led her to write about her thoughts and feelings in a diary at home whilst listening to music which in turn evolved into poetry and lyric writing to release her over whelming emotions and despair. The ability to share and expel the rawest most honest emotions has given a power to her music which is easy to connect to for whatever reasons which goes hand in hand with her want, need, to help others though music and her Music & Mental Health Awareness workshops which Tiger Lilly takes around the country to talk about subjects close to her heart; bullying, depression, anxiety and living with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Recently becoming the official Artist in Residency at The Westbury Hotel in Mayfair, the Slough hailing songstress creates a tantalising mix of rock, indie, and pop which never fails to surprise and tempt certainly on the evidence of The Story So Far. The album opens up with Chasing Ghosts and immediately has ears transfixed and appetite licking lips as an initial guitar strum is joined by Tiger Lilly’s magnetic voice. An eager catchiness is just as swiftly there teasing attention before the song blossoms into a bold and rousing rock stroll. There is an instinctive power to the sound and energy, one equally bound to passion delivered words but also an unpredictability which only adds to the creative drama and compelling temptation.

The track is superb, a glorious start soon matched in the mellower but no less potent Promises. With a slither of Americana in its melodic sway, impassioned rock in its own highly persuasive roar, the song hits the spot dead centre before Silence is Golden swings in on a melodic canter. There is a Pretenders-esque hue to the tantalising track, a whiff of Fleetwood Mac too as it dances on the senses into the passions.

Three songs in and you just know you need to hear more, an appetite only rewarded in return by the flirtatious antics of Throw Me A Line and the more fiery heart of Over, both taking ears and imagination by boisterous hands. The first is an indie rock tango, every rhythm a mischievous incitement and hook a teasing invitation as the tones and expression of Tiger Lilly enchants with passion, beauty, and energy. Its successor has a more restrained touch to its also lively enticement but energy replaced by a more incendiary intrigue and atmosphere as it bares its soul.

Physically calmer waters are dipped into by Green Eyed Monster though its heart and emotional climate borders on lava-esque as another country like breeze colludes with melodic rock instincts before the following Army provides a plaintive plea with its own emotion arousing crescendos.

Cradled in the emotive poetry of the piano, Tiger Lilly seduces ears and thoughts within New Year next, its melancholic grace and lyrical hope a warm hug while Woman simply bears its heart with melodic elegance and emotional fire. Both songs simply get under the skin though each has to bow to the majesty of closing track and that latest single, Broken Glass. Instantly there is a thicker intensity of shadows; imposing essences skirting voice and melody from the dark corners of the track but held at bay by the beacon of light in keys and voice. It is a highly evocative and magnetic encounter providing the perfect way into the creative and reflective heart of Tiger Lilly.

The album, through track order, is set up to have you rocking and dancing then emotionally embracing and reflecting with never a moment bringing a decrease in pleasure and two way intimacy. The Story So Far has been a captivatingly honest adventure with the next exciting chapter just beginning…

The single Broken Glass is out now on iTunes.

Infectious bounds and spiky hooks: an interview with Pranx

PRANX_RingMasterReview

With a clutch of videos and a potent first EP behind them, Pranx is a German outfit beginning to lure potent attention. Their rousing live presence has equally drawn high praise. So to discover more about this upcoming proposition, we seized the chance to talk with the trio about their EP, progress to date, and all things Pranx in general.

Hi guys, many thanks for taking time out to talk with us.

Can you first introduce the band and give us some background to how it all started?

We are PRANX, a Pop Punk band from Mosbach, Germany consisting of Marcel on drums, Rouven on bass and vocals, and Boris on guitar and vocals. We formed in February 2014. Rouven and Boris had played together in a band since 2008 but their drummer quit. Instead of just searching for a new one we decided to make a new start entirely and form a new band with a new name and new songs. We met drummer Marcel on Facebook to start PRANX in early 2014.

Being involved in other bands before, has that had any impact on what you are doing now, in maybe inspiring a change of style or direction?

Like we said, Boris and Rouven had played together since 2008. Marcel was also involved in some bands before including a German hip hop band. I don’t think it affected the style we’re playing now with PRANX but it definitely had an impact on our growth as musicians in general. The good chemistry between our two vocalists regarding singing harmonies together for example has been cultivated while playing together in their former band.

What inspired the band name?

It’s a shorter version of Rouven’s and Boris’ former band Prank FanatiX. We wanted to have a name that’s easier for people to remember as it always was spelled wrong on flyers. The original Prank FanatiX name was inspired by the term ‘faith fanatics’ in Green Day’s song ‘East Jesus Nowhere’.

Pranx2_RingMasterReviewWas there any specific idea behind the forming of the band and also in what you wanted it and your sound to offer?

As a band we hope to enrich some people’s life by playing music, just like all those bands we look up to did and still do to us. Music of those bands had such a massive impact on our lives over the past few years, so we hope that someday people feel the same thing about our music. That’s what we want to offer the people who listen to our music. Another idea behind starting this band is to create some kind of exit out of this daily routine. We want to achieve more in life than just working normal jobs and get stuck in boring lives like 99% of today’s society.

Do the same things still drive the band time?

Yes, we’re still driven by the same things. I think even more than when we started.

Since your early days, how would you say your sound has evolved?

It hasn’t evolved that much since PRANX started but it definitely has since our first days of making music in general. Our very first songs clearly had a Blink-182/Green Day stamp on them whereas now our sound is much more individual (even though you can clearly still hear the Blink influences of course). Since a few years we’re also influenced by this new wave of pop punk bands that has appeared. Bands like Neck Deep and The Story So Far are also great inspirations.

Has it been more of an organic movement in your sound or more a deliberate wanting to try new things?

A mix of both I would say. A huge part of our sound comes from us wanting to try new stuff but sometimes while writing songs something new comes up and you hadn’t planned it. If it’s not something we had in mind for our sound but still sounds cool we go along with it and try to implement it.

Presumably across the band there is a wide range of inspirations; are there any in particular which have impacted not only on the band’s music but your personal approach and ideas to creating and playing music?

That’s hard to answer. I can’t think of anyone that changed the way we create music but I’m sure it happened subconsciously anytime along the way. All in all we’re still very conservative songwriters. Take a guitar, play some chords and jam some melodies until you find something you like and go from there.

Is there a process to the songwriting which generally guides the writing of songs?

When someone has the idea of a new song he usually likes to write the first version of it all by himself. The process is writing the whole thing, making a demo with all the instruments and arrangements and then showing it to the rest of the band. Then we look at it together and see what we can optimize and change to make it the sound great.

Where are your lyrical inspirations drawn from more often than not?

The inspiration for the lyrics comes from situations of our everyday life. Things you go through in every stage of your life or even things and problems we notice in other peoples’ life around us can make perfect inspiration for song lyrics.

Can you give us some background to your latest release?art_RingMasterReview

It’s a 4 track EP called Things On Your Mind that was released in early 2015. There are two music videos so far and the third is released very soon, but we plan on doing one for the last song as well. All the videos are directed and produced by bassist Rouven. All in all I think the album is a great mixture of catchy sing-along choruses and cool punk riffs, spreading a lot of positive energy.

Give us some insight to the themes and premise behind it and its songs.

Another Year and Standard are more or less love songs about girls from the past. Especially for Standard I tried to write the cheesiest lyrics and make it as cliché as possible. You could see it as a kind of a tribute to all the 90s pop punk love songs. Pogo Romance is a song about failing while promising a glimpse of hope for getting back up again at the end. Nightmare is about social isolation and forgetting to live your life in the ‘real’ world.

Are you a band which goes into the studio with songs pretty much in their final state or prefer to develop them as you record?

Since we’re a band that’s short of money like every other band and studio time is expensive we try to do as much work for the record as we can before we enter the studio. This means we have the final songs all ready to record in their final state and try to make changes in the studio only when really necessary.

Tell us about the live side to the band?

For me playing live is the best part of being in a band. It’s not only having fun and partying on stage with your friends but also the time of the night where you’re not on stage and have the chance to meet new people and other musicians. There are so many cool people we got to know just by playing shows all around Southern Germany. Always nice to connect with and to play shows for awesome people!

It is not easy for any new band to make an impact regionally let alone nationally and further afield. How have you found it in Germany? Are there the opportunities to make a mark if the want is there for new bands?

Where we come from is actually one of the worst places for bands to start. The music scene of our hometown is as good as dead and I think it always has been. We always have to travel a little bit further to play good shows. We have to rely heavily on the internet to reach people because there’s little to no interest in live bands in our region.

Pranx3_RingMasterReviewHow has the internet and social media impacted on the band to date?

I don’t know if PRANX would still exist if there was no internet. We probably [would not have] even found a drummer if [we had not] met Marcel on Facebook. 95% of people got to know us through Facebook or YouTube so without that I don’t think we had a chance to even reach people.

I think you can still use the internet to your advantage even when you’re a big band with greater success. But I also think it can be hard to influence whether it’s working for you or not. What works for one band does not necessarily have to work for another and sometimes the mass of people on social media is hard to predict or analyse. In my opinion, your music is what counts at the end of the day. You can do every single thing right when promoting your music through the internet but if your songs suck people still won’t like you. On the other hand you can get good exposure if your music kicks ass even if you’re not a social media pro.

Once again a big thanks for sharing time with us; anything you would like to add or reveal for the readers?

Thanks for the interview! If you like, you can check us out at https://www.facebook.com/PRANXofficial to watch all our music videos and check regular updates. Watch out for our next music video for the song Pogo Romance that’s going to be released soon!

Fighting Sides – Haven’t Scored Yet EP

Fighting Sides Promo_RingMasterReview

A band for less than a year, US quartet Fighting Sides has already risen to be a prominent presence within the Atlanta music scene. Now the band is looking at nudging bigger attention and recognition with the release of their captivating new EP, Haven’t Scored Yet. Offering four tracks of alternative rock meets melodic/pop punk; the EP is a lively and magnetic introduction to the band for many of us whilst potently building on the potential of its well-received predecessor.

Emerging April 2015, Fighting Sides was formed by vocalist Robbie Hiser after the “implosion” of his previous band. Calling on friends, Hiser quickly completed the band’s line-up with guitarist Alex Downtain, bassist Arafat Patwary, and drummer Sheppard Martin. That May saw the release of their debut offering, Demo MMXV, an encounter sowing the seeds and groundwork for the vivacity in the band’s sound which now fuels Haven’t Scored Yet.

Recorded with Jason Andrews (Go Radio, Holiday Parade) and mixed/mastered by Sam Pura (Basement, The Story So Far), the new EP opens with This Is Our Night. The first lure of guitar is enough to awaken ears though they really come alive as the warm tones and harmonies of Hiser and band further offer the imagination their bright prowess. Never breaking from its relatively restrained stroll, the song soon reveals its pop punk tenacity as hooks and riffs unite with robust rhythms for an infection loaded romp.

Fighting Sides Art_RingMasterReviewThe following Stand Tall is similarly bred but swiftly shows a grouchier edge to its intensity and rhythmic textures as well as richer emotive hues in its fiery melodic enterprise and vocals. As its predecessor, the song has ears and thoughts fully engaged with a nicely brewing appetite for more in tow. That gets healthily fed by the poppier exploits of One More Day, though it too has a potent line in emotional shadows within its galvanic canter. Though the song, as its companions, is not a full on roar, it has an anthemic quality which only adds to a successful persuasion and recruitment of listener involvement.

Let Me Be brings things to an equally enjoyable and convincing close; its accomplished and boisterously melodic rock ‘n’ roll a highly satisfying and engaging incitement to the wanting to know more about Fighting Sides.

Right now it is fair to say that Fighting Sides is still trying to find something majorly distinct in their music to set them apart but in providing a thoroughly enjoyable time they have hit the nail square on the head with Haven’t Scored Yet.

The Haven’t Scored Yet EP is released March 18th and available @ http://haventscoredyet.bigcartel.com/products

Best Years – Drop Out

BY1_RingMaster Review

There is no denying that UK pop punks Best Years wear their inspirations openly in their sound but also that they write a cracking good pop song as evidenced by new EP Drop Out. Romping with three songs arguably low on dramatic originality but high on accomplished and energetically tenacious enterprise, the Manchester quintet’s second offering is one feel good romp.

Barely a year into their emergence, Best Years quickly nudged eager attention with debut EP Footwork, and now its successor is ready to stir up even greater awareness and excitement. Musically, as suggested, Best Years are unafraid to draw on the best essences of influences such as Blink-182, Brand New, The Story So Far, and Lit amongst a few. This ensures an easy familiarity meets invention in their sound, and right now it works in their favour in a release which uncages, in the words of vocalist Joel Plews, “three songs that’ll show what we’re made of.

BY Artwork_RingMaster Review     Drop Out opens up with Built To Last, a song to be admitted which had these ears hooked just by its opening melody, its warm smile carrying suggestions of riper things to come, which indeed they do as the song reveals a feisty stroll with spiky beats and a web of hooks and fiery riffs. There is an instant and eager energy to the song which is matched by the strong vocals of Plews, backed very well across the band. The guitars of Ed Lawson and James Hunt continue to dance on the imagination from start to finish, continually hinting, as the song itself does, that they are about to explode into a more aggressive state but instead just remain flirting and teasing with lively enterprise.

It is a highly pleasing start to the EP but soon outshine by Overrated, a track which rhythmically is gentle but firmly imposing and melodically tangy. The bass of Josh Holland provides a slightly understated but captivating shadow to more vibrant resourcefulness from the guitars whilst the beats of drummer Josh Berzins skilfully frames all in the increasing contagion. Again it is fair to say vocals and guitars steal the limelight but are only enhanced and allowed the freedom by the darker hues of the rhythmic union. The track is the lead song from Drop Out and easy to see why with its infectious character and enterprise, though for personal tastes it’s successor just steals the show.

Back Then from an eventful and inviting start quickly blossoms into a roar of a song. All three tracks are anthems easy to get fully involved with but the third song is manna to rock ‘n’ roll instincts. Rhythmically it is a riveting agitation whilst hooks and harmonies just grip and explode in a warm shower of sound and energy. The chorus, well that is inescapable and completes one inventive bellow of fun and persuasion.

Without being truly distinct from the best of the crowd, Best Years show themselves to be a richly promising and thoroughly enjoyable proposition through Drop Out. It also suggests that certain uniqueness is brewing within so watch this space for possible bigger bolder things with matching success ahead.

The Drop Out EP is released on August 28th 2015 via Dream Atlantic Records.

This Legend – It’s In The Streets

ThisLegendPromoPhotoColorHighRes

With the pedigree of its members, expectations for the debut album from This Legend were demanding but also wanting to be seriously surprised. After a strong but underwhelming start, the LA quartet not only fed all wants whilst utilising familiar pop punk ingredients in a series of relentlessly contagious encounters, but sculpted a continuous adventure of unique and gripping twists across the release. The result is an album which, like an old friend instinctively and continually ignites the sweet spot of desires of the genre whilst creating brand new and captivating temptations. It’s In The Streets is a gem of a proposition which does surprise and find its own character but also provides that recognisable essence which turns every song into an instantaneously bordering on anthemic lure.

Formed by ex- Yellowcard members Longineu Parsons III (drums) and Ben Harper (guitar), the former leaving the band earlier this year and reuniting with his friend who left their former outfit nine years earlier, This Legend was soon bulging with experience and talent as the pair brought in vocalist/guitarist Chris Castillo (Stanley and the Search), and bassist Steven Neufeld (Hey Mike!) to complete the line-up. Signing with Cyber Tracks, an LA based record label owned by El Hefe (of NOFX) and his wife Jen Abeyta, the band soon set about recording their debut with producer Sam Pura (The Story So Far, State Champs). In what has already been a busy year for the new band, This Legend now unveil its opening shot and you can only surmised that the attention and workload is only going to get more hectic as its virulent charms spreads their pleasure.

As mentioned the album did not exactly blow ears and thoughts away at first though opener Lyrics With My Pen certainly strides in on a rhythmic temptation which instantly grips attention. It is a dramatic start which loses its potency ruffas the song relaxes into an accomplished and confident stroll of warm riffs and spicy hooks stroked by the excellent vocals of Castillo. The track does little wrong to be fair but equally just provides what so many other genre offerings seem to, something enjoyable and engaging but nothing out of the ordinary, even with the impressive craft of Parsons III pounding away throughout. Subsequently though the track turns out to be an appetiser for greater things which are hinted at by the following Feeling Like I Should and fully triggered from Holiday From Crazy onwards. The first of the pair is a warm and radiant persuasion, a lively croon where vocals and guitar provide a colourful emotive portrait from which the chorus finds a rich infection to spark the imagination. It is the little twists of chords and hooks though which intrigue and ignite the song; elements explored even more from hereon in as its successor takes over. The third song flies at ears with melodies and rhythms pumped and creative tenacity aflame. There is a spicy mix of early Green Day and Simple Plan to the song but the rich hues of sonic adventure and rhythmic drama are the riveting and ear exciting endeavour which makes a great song into something special.

The album’s title track with its emotive depth and vocal expression thrills next, rhythms intimidating bait within the rawer but no less seductive landscape of the energetic and controlled blaze. Again there is a dramatic edge to vocals and sound which elevates every syllable and note into something unpredictable, fresh, and exhilarating; the track a swift peak emulating its predecessor but in turn matched and exceeded by the volatile stomp that is My City. Wonderfully exhausting and inescapably contagious, the track is a highly charged punk antagonist flooded with fiery melodic hooks and teases within another knee weakening, passions lighting rhythmic assault. To seal its dominance on the album, it also provides a mouth-watering change of gait and hook clad predation, a twist which actually rings a bell of undefined influences but puts the icing on a flavoursome chunk of pop punk.

     Skin & Bones comes next and provides an impassioned stroll within bracing riff laced scenery speared by again perfectly barbed hooks, Castillo especially impressive and engrossing vocally, whilst Life Pushes Hard dances with ears through tangy melodies over a feisty shuffle of rhythms and bass temptation. Both tracks keep ears and appetite greedy, the first especially raising a new hunger before the pair of I Deserve Better and Moving On add their creative spoils to the feverish revelry. The first of the two excels with its spiky riffs and wiry grooves and the second through its tantalising weave of emotive melodies and vocal reflection. Though it lacks the extra something to flirt with the passions, the song’s fresh enterprise and skilled structure only leaves satisfaction grinning.

A highly agreeable if safe offering comes next with Regrets, a song which does not venture too far from pop punk limits, unlike other songs on the album, but with vocals and rhythms especially finding essences of the distinct hues veining previous songs it unreservedly pleases before the urgently catchy Get Fast takes over to cast its own feet inciting contagion. Its rawer tone makes a tasty complement to the breezier breath of the previous song and sets up the aural theatre of final track Josh Lights A Fire perfectly, the closing song if not quite in sound definitely having that dramatic essence which Fall Out Boy embrace.

The song is a terrific end to an excellent encounter, a release which stands fully alone from the past adventures of This Legend’s personnel. Actually It’s In The Streets suggests that the band has the potential to eclipse their band’s previous endeavours, time will tell but more treats like this will go down nicely.

It’s In The Streets is available now via Cyber Tracks @ http://www.cyber-tracks.com/store/

Get Stoked – Washington Street EP

_MG_5277

Creating a proposition which simultaneously invites the listener to brawl and party with its feisty mix of pop punk and rawer hardcore aggressiveness, the Washington Street EP is one impressive entrance from US punks Get Stoked. It unleashes five tracks which show an imagination and want to invent something strikingly different yet comes with a familiarity which plays like a returning friend loaded up with devilish intent. It is a highly enjoyable romp which dares to be adventurous and is confident enough to employ those highly flavoursome and recognisable spices.

Hailing from Mount Pleasant, Michigan, Get Stoked consists of vocalist Cameron Wheeler, guitarists Ryan Turek and Zach Smith, bassist Ben Jensen, and drummer Jacob Cardona. Other than the quintet citing influences such as The Wonder Years, The Story So Far, Set Your Goals, A Day To Remember, and All Time Low upon their music, there is little more we can tell about the band other than they write and craft rather appetising slices of sinew sculpted pop punk.

Released via Imminence Records, Washington Street opens up with the instrumental Intro, a minute and a half of thumping rhythms provoking through infectious riffs and hooks courted by a dark toned bass temptation. It is not an ep_Cover_3explosive piece but one hinting at the potent offerings to come whilst treating feet and imagination to an energetic dance. Its successful beckoning is followed by the imposing presence of Actions Speak Louder Than Words. Starting with the strong tones of Wheeler over swipes of guitar and an increasingly intimidating run of beats, it is an engaging if unsurprising start even with the also appealing backing vocals of Turek building up the lure of the song. It is when the track suddenly twists into a livelier surge of antagonistic beats and scything strikes of guitar that it comes alive, slipping into a melodic flame of expectations feeding and ear refreshing pop punk revelry. From vocals to sonic incitement, heavy rhythms to abrasing riffery, the song is a thrilling stomp which allows its inventive unpredictability to run naked through the track. The song also shows why the band has been compared to some of their inspirations but just as strongly and pleasingly it lights the senses with older essences of Hagfish and Mucky Pup.

The following Hand In Your Demise takes little time in seizing the imagination and appetite, its opening roam of compelling rhythms and an evocative melodic tendril the forerunner to a blaze of sonic endeavour and melodic tenacity ridden by once again impressing vocals and flirtatious energy. The track is soon stamping its rhythmic feet with firm intent too whilst the guitars cast a web of emotive and infectious designs to which Wheeler wraps his pleasing delivery and lyrical narrative. Though not quite matching its predecessor, the track similarly just grows and excels vocally and musically the deeper into its body it goes to provide another exciting proposition.

Forward Progress lacks the spark of the last pair of songs but nevertheless parades a strong mix of ideation and sounds revealing more of the depth and expressive ability of the band whilst shaping another infectious and provocative encounter. It is soon left in the shadow of the closing title track though; a song from its opening crystalline melody embraces a string of styles and inventive exploration. A rugged cage of riffs and beats initially traps ears with a vocal drama from Wheeler captivating the imagination. The track then bursts into another pungent stride of pop punk clad in a hardcore predaciousness before slipping into something melodically comfortable and anthemically contagious. It is an enthralling slab of punk rock which alone provides enough evidence to suggest Get Stoked is a band with the potential to make major strides and create impressive marks on the punk scene.

That suggestion is more than backed up by the rest of the Washington Street EP, a release easy to recommend to those wanting something more substantial and braver in their pop punk.
