“A monumental debut of impalpable force”
Estrons are a band who have accumulated a reputation for being ferocious. From raucous live shows that sling you into another dimension, to singles of poignant dynamism, the release of their debut ‘You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough’ has been beyond eagerly awaited.
The outfit have commonly fought to not be cornered into any category of genre, where this album displays Estron’s capability outgrows being labeled with a truly pioneering work.
Beginning with the chugging installment of ‘Lilac’, the tone of the album is set with impalpable guitar from Rhodri Daniel and snarling undertones from bassist Steffan Pringle. The merger of catchy hooks with chaotic progressions make for explosive instrumentation, often sliced through by raw vocals of Tali Källström. Källström’s rage-fuelled delivery champions relentlessly, making solidified statements against the theme of conformity and succumbing to objectification. Amongst the fiery nature of this album lies an eloquence as heard in ‘Strangers’ and ‘Cameras’, where Källström’s soaring vocals evokes wild emotion in an ever-so-slightly slower tempo.
This album as an element of brutalism to it, where the narratives paired with frenzied energy leaves you exacerbated yet yearning for more. It’s almost an awakening. The stormy catharsis of ‘Jade’ and unapologetic conviction in ‘Make A Man’ qualify as tracks that are nothing less than havoc-inducing.
‘You Say I’m Too Much, I Say You’re Not Enough’ is an outstanding output of unwavering passion.
