The Carnations – This Is Reality

Screen shot 2015-03-05 at 16.56.47With all the roughness you’d expect from a demo, The Carnations are calling upon some of the greatest musical minds of the last 50 years and plenty of them seem to have picked up the phone.

Influenced by the old school bands from The Beatles right through to Oasis, think along that theme and you’re bound to be within a stones throw of the sound, there are plenty of familiar noises to be heard and the hallmarks that this track bestows have become so well known for a reason. THey’re cornerstones of great music. Though there’s not anything particularly new about the band’s sound, they are still very exciting to have blaring in your ears and you can be sure they’d match Beady Eye for a live performance any day of the week. With your standard guitar, bass and drums backing up a decent quality lead vocal, be prepared for something that’ll take you back to a type of music that transcends the concept of time.

Sure, you’ve heard it all before, but classics are classics for a reason.
