Marlow, a four-piece band from the Sydney area out of Australia, has finally released their much-awaited album Seven. It took Marlow two years to record this album. At the first listen you could easily say that they would be grouped together with 30 Seconds to Mars. No, don’t close off your senses that fast. Do not assume, listen to the album and listen to it all the way through.
The seven songs on the album have a web-like connection consisting of a powerhouse ritual of drums and bass that do nothing but enhance your conscious audiophile tendencies.
Coming across as a band that cares about the production of their work instead of just handing it over to a zealous producer is a smart move. With their single “I Can Breathe” finding a home on the airwaves, you should first listen to the songs “Ocean” and “Icaro,” which leading up to the catastrophic beauty that is “I Can Breathe.”
Seven is considered a tribal-electro, progressive alternative rock album. That’s a mouthful right, how about just calling it music, good music, and wait … great music. If the word incendiary could be used as an everyday occurrence the shredding that has somehow been tamed just enough to allow the voice of the guitar to scream out, in an utter pristine functional way, then this album would be described as incendiary.
As an entity Seven may be that hard album to beat or to overcome. But as Marlow would have it, they are hardworking and strive for the best. Listening to Marlow will give you the pleasure of discovering new music and listening to Seven will change your mind about alternative rock. Their 2013 tour kicked off in August. Hopefully you had the opportunity of seeing them live.
