Peur – Future Architects EP

Gas STN B&W_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review

Only days in and June 2015 is proving to be the source of some striking and seriously exciting encounters across a wealth of styles and genres. Another to add to that potent list is the Future Architects EP from UK trio Peur. Uniting their past two attention grabbing singles with new imagination loaded tracks, the Manchester band easily and forcibly confirm their growing stature as one of the more mouth-watering prospects on the British music scene.

Formed in 2013, the threesome of guitarist/vocalist Joe Lomax, bassist Ryan Greenhalgh, and drummer Sam Tempest quickly sparked support and attention with first single Anarchy and following debut EP We Can Build Astronauts in their band’s first few months. Live they did not take long in making a strong, acclaim earning impression either, 2014 seeing the band sharing stages with Empty Yard Experiment, DZ Deathrays, Allusondrugs, and Dearly Beloved. It was a busy and successful year which has continued into this with the release of a trio of singles, including This Will Destroy You, and now the Neil Treppas produced Future Architects.

The band’s inspirations includes artists ranging from Biffy Clyro to Nine Inch Nails, essences amongst many which make a swift spicing in the EP once the atmospheric Intro lays down the almost dystopian air of the release. The brief sonic narrative slips into the following They Have Destroyed Everything, and immediately the guitar of Lomax is casting melodic veins of acidic expression through the encroaching shadow thick landscape of the instrumental. That oppressive ambience is an imposing hue over pungent rhythms and a striking electronic colouring but suddenly lifts as the music in turn seamlessly flows into the gripping stroll of Explosions.

FA_Reputation Radio/RingMaster Review   An open and immediately magnetic Queens Of the Stone Age bred groove ignites ears first, its swinging persuasion matched by the rhythmic tenacity of Greenhalgh and Tempest. Contagion is a quick infestation of the song whilst drama and emotion is as rich through the enjoyable vocal tones and delivery of Lomax. That Josh Homme like spicing is an on-going tempting but as it expands and proceeds, the song explores a Muse like croon in chorus and voice where the early dramatic quality enriches every irresistible hooks and addictive groove within the encounter; familiarity and originality aligning for one voracious roar of a proposition.

     It Ends Before It Starts steps up next and it too is quickly enslaving ears and thoughts with healthy grooves, the thick lure of the one conjured by the bass especially captivating. Though it does not quite have the consistent swagger of its predecessor the track ebbs and flows with powerful energy and evocative invention. At times it offers a reflective, angst hued sigh and in others a bellowing expulsion of passion and intensity with both contrasts as potent and alluring as the other. Once more a Matt Bellamy and co breath coats the adventure but fair to say that again both songwriting and sound only use such influences as colour to their own designs.

The release ends with Hollow Skies, and if atmospheres and emotional intensity was thick before, they combine here for a smothering seduction fuelled further by the harmonic richness and craft of Lomax’s voice. Once more shadows line the noir lit theatre of the guitars and the emerging depths of the song, its body almost cavernous in feel with jabbing beats and darkly toned bass enterprise. Fair to say this time though it is the songwriting and the voice of Lomax which steals the show, even if unavoidably you have to also offer Muse as a close but certainly not quality defusing comparison to his presence.

The EP is as compelling as Peur is openly inventive, every track blossoming from the technical and inventive canvas the band members skilfully craft. They may still be looking for their truly distinct sound but more treats like Future Architects will see few complaining as Peur continues their impressive emergence and exploration.

Peur – Explosions

Press 2

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.
