The Society - Tears [Single] (2017) - Review

Band: The Society
Title: Tears [Single]
Release date: 22 February 2017
Label: Self-Released

Tracklist:
01. Tears

The legendary drummer Paul Gilmartin is back with a brand new band called The Society. Paul is a well known name in the post-punk scene, mostly because he was member of the cult British band The Danse Society in the early 80s and left the band in January 2014. Now he returns to the scene with his new band named, guess what, The Society. This new band of his is bearing the true musical essence and the legacy that he adopted through the years. The debut single, "Tears", was just released and it really shows Gilmartin's new act as a post-punk band of excellent quality. Beside Gilmartin behind the drums, the line-up of The Society is formed by Jonathan Cridford (vocals), Elliot Wheeler (guitar), Ade Clarke (bass) and Darran Guy (synth).

When I heard the music my first impression was that this is excellent! The quality and experience of the members is undeniable. You can feel the claw and the passion. The singer is in my point of view very interesting and differential from what we are used in post-punk. After seeing the promo video, I was sure that Paul Gilmartin was right in choosing his partners and especially in choosing the singer. Jonathan Cridford with his sweet, kind of a "lost boy" voice, plus the theatrical performance that expresses the feeling of music in his body language is perfect. Congrats for that, I'm seeing a great potential and I’m looking forward for a stylish post-punk album from The Society in the near future.

p.s. You can check out the “Tears” music video which was filmed and produced by Martin Aylward at this location. The single is also available to download for free on Bandcamp.

Band: Beyond Sensory Experience
Album title: The End Of It All
Release date: 29 June 2016
Label: Cyclic Law

The End Of It All does anything but break the mold when it comes to musical output by Beyond Sensory Experience. The sounds presented here will be familiar to any fan of their previous albums, especially their most recent releases through Cyclic Law. Beyond Sensory Experience have a very particular sort of sound, which seems to draw a lot of parallels to Silent Heart by The Human Voice. Beyond Sensory Experience achieve this bleak and melancholic mood through the use of minimal droning passages, checkered with solemn and tragically forlorn piano movements. For many listeners The End Of It All should be the perfect companion to your own personal apocalypse. Also, anyone interested in melancholic neo-classical will find plenty to enjoy here. As far as readers who may not often listen to this genre, Beyond Sensory Experience showcase many of the elements which make for a perfect introduction to dark ambient and its various cousin genres.
