It’s only taken the Kent rockers 5 days to reveal their statement of intent for 2017, releasing dramatic, hook heavy track ‘Barbiturates’.
The track has a serious underlying message about drug reliance and how drugs can take over people as a way to suppress emotions. The weighty lyrics are built around a pulsating, eye opening track that has revealed a new side to a band who have so far been focused on nailing catchy, bouncing rock tracks. It feels now the band have been recognised and built a fan base they can create tracks like ‘Barbiturates’.
Frontman Jamie Glass describes he “wanted to write a song that could contain a theatrical contrast of ferocious guitars and silence. Skin-crawling screams and pitiful whispers. Manic episodes and tranquility.”
The track has a to and fro contrast between the raging guitar riffs and moments when the track falls into silence, cleverly thought out to create excitement for the euphoric chorus, a worthy centre piece for a track showing maturity and creating an emphatic sound for a band destined for big stages.
Every second in the 4 minute track is carefully mapped out. Jammed with content supported by screeching lyrics that echo out similar to ‘The Big Moon’s’ huge 2016 single ‘Cupid’.
The track breaks down into a frenzy of anger and despair representing the struggle of drug reliance and the shear effect it can have on the human brain. The end of the track is thoughtfully brought back to the main topic which could easily get lost in amongst the colourful array of noise.
2017 will be a busy year for an electric band finding their feet. Headline shows already booked and a support slot with Spring King in February, Barbiturates is an intriguing, in captivating side to Get Inuit.
