Leeds’ space age one-man rock band builds a world for fans to explore.
If people listened to music with as much care as Trigger Cut have put into Buster, the world of music would be a very different place.
It’s no secret that to make it as a band, you need to be wiling to adapt to whatever is popular in the mainstream. Even new independent bands seem to be adopting this revival of the classic quiet/loud formula that dominated the 90s. Although most of these bands have a solid live sound, they don’t translate it to the studio with any passion or energy. Queasy on the other hand are proving to be standing far out from the crowd and doing things their own way.
HIT ME WITH YOUR LAZERS, YOUR LAZERS, YOUR LAZERS!
Remember in the 90’s when Indie and Alternative Rock were quite moody but had something special about them? Well Pilod seem to.
There’s not really much to give this introduction, other than the fact the name drew me in, followed by the album art. Also I have a fucking mental rabbit running around me and climbing my legs right now. Cute guy.
I’ll be honest, this is one of the most difficult reviews I’ve ever tried to start writing. Not so much because of its unique art rock approach, but more because of my conflicted level of interest throughout. I don’t like to start firing off negativity, especially for how much I actually do like Collider as a whole, but the first few tracks are attention demanding.
This review was fuelled by intrigue. I was sent a tweet with nothing more than a link to this music video. I checked it out, the lovely human being that I am, and loved what I heard, so immediately gave it a re-tweet. Unfortunately, not being sent it as a proper request it slipped my mind, but here we are now. I couldn’t not share the love on this one.
