A raucous rock vibe dominates while being supported by synth elements and an emotional vocal. The track has a huge arena sound to it which reminds me of Big Data. The vocals of Kenny Fleetwood in the verse sections has a certain vulnerability to them. However the vocals hit hard and direct in the chorus to make a sure fit hit. ‘Hold Me Like That’ can be found on their newly released EP, Care More.
A little anarchy is needed to change things up sometimes. Moncrieff has crafted a very addicting tune that doesn’t hold anything back. It’s in your face anthem with a bit of Pixies energy (think ‘Where Is My Mind’ vibe). The drums and guitar are first-class and overall production is killer. Moncrieff is singer/songwriter based in Ireland.
Lyrics: We’re all living in a simulation Taking pills for over stimulation Talking to avoid the conversation When September ends we will awaken And every president is on the payroll If you wear a uniform then what you say goes I’m a fucking unicorn if i say so We chase our dreams while you spread your lies Build castles in the sky Heaven knows we’re all gonna die So fuck your opinions And fuck your decisions And fuck politicians And fuck your permission We lost our minds We’re feeling better now The kids are high And they’re never coming down Generation z - expectations high I'll decide how i wanna waste my life Flipping through the pages read between the lines Mass incarceration of the youth’s your crime We chase our dreams while you spread your lies Build castles in the sky Heaven knows we’re all gonna die So fuck your opinions And fuck your decisions And fuck politicians And fuck your permission We lost our minds We’re feeling better now The kids are high And they’re never coming down
Always a good week when new Big Black Delta music drops especially when it’s his forth full length album aptly named ‘4’. My favorite tracks from Jonathan Bates (aka Big Black Delta) are the up beat tempo tracks with his vocals and a splash of melancholy. It’s those tracks that connect for me and ‘Vessel’ is one of them. ‘Vessel’ has a sweet undercurrent of sadness but locked in a lovely melody. Favorite line in the track ‘All I get are lessons, Through a broken heart’.
