Total Life – Caught In The Bend

Screen shot 2015-02-12 at 17.03.08Oh how I love the opening guitar riff of this, there’s something about it that seems to be completely in tune with my body and mind, a rare if not previously impossible treat. There’s plenty of promise in this track from Total Life as in 4 short minutes (and 14 seconds, in case anyone wants to get pedantic) they highlight a range of musical skills, both as performers and with their technical knowledge, that shows they’re really worth paying attention to.

It’s not the most predictable thing you’ll come across this year and that’s exactly what makes it such an unmissable journey to head on. The horn solo is absolutely the right direction for them to head in and the element of surprise certainly plays to their advantage. You’ll never quite figure out exactly where the end of the road is with this one but if you just relax and enjoy each step along the path, you’ll find yourself not caring where your headed. Nothing beats being caught up in the moment like this.

An absolute delight to listen to from start to finish.
