Scarlet Echo – Lose Control

Screen shot 2014-11-07 at 19.46.11Are you ready for a sturdy injection of power? It doesn’t matter whether you said yes or not, Scarlet Echo are going to bring an energy into your ears that will feel like you’ve drunk enough Red Bull to keep you awake for days on end. Other caffeine-filled beverages are available, obviously. Whether it be the pounding drums or the high-pitched lead guitar lines, the track simply oozes with drive and there’s a determination within the band to bring out the deepest sound from each and every beat.

Following in footsteps previously taken by the likes of Radiohead and Editors with their somewhat disorientating effects-driven sounds, the band don’t ever quite lose control entirely which has benefits and drawbacks – the biggest drawback at time feels like they have more left over in the tank, rather than giving absolutely everything. That being said, there’s an incredible driving force behind the band and they appear to be incredibly tight as a unit, each beat comes just as powerfully as the last and an excellent snare sound really keeps the piece pushing forward.

If you’re looking for something intense to get your pulse racing, this is what you should be listening to. It’ll keep you up all night.
