Whether it is their new single or just a New Year’s Day treat for their fans, Gratitude Falling provides further proof that Horse Party needs to be feverishly embraced by the British music scene. The song is a smouldering serenade from the creative heart and the increasingly adventurous sound which the trio from Bury St Edmunds is already noted for, and another slither of variety which has especially blossomed over recent releases.
To be fair fresh flavours and explorations have never been a novelty since the band emerged into view back in 2013 with tracks like Back To Mono and What Do You Need. It has especially been with the EPs Paydirt and Money Talks of last year, and songs around them, where the trio of guitarist/ vocalist Ellie Langley, guitarist/vocalist Seymour Quigley, and drummer/vocalist Shannon Hope have really stretched and pushed their creative recipes, embracing new strong flavours to their post punk seeded core.
The bluesy emotive kiss of Gratitude Falling is another new hue in their ever evolving tapestry, a song as beguiling as it is resourcefully fiery and sonically tenacious. Its entrance is simply a melodic lure, guitar offering a single tempting soon courted by the thicker tone of bass and the ever engaging tones of Langley. Swiftly there is also an infectious flirtation to the song, one instantly open but also biding its time and intensity to really explode with the band in a rousing scuzzy expulsion of sound and intensity posing as a chorus.
The song is an increasingly gripping and dramatic enslavement of ears and appetite and where many Horse Party songs light the touch paper to rigorous involvement from the off it is one of those others taking their time to seduce and entice over numerous listens, all the while revealing more charm and rich persuasion. Fair to say Gratitude Falling does straight away pull on attention and spark a want to hear it again and again where it proceeds to sink the listener deeper into its inescapable dark majestic tempting. More and more newcomers are being lured towards the band with each encounter and long will it continue with tracks like this.
