When you’re scouring the interwebs for new music, you never know what you might come across. A lot of it is bad, some is good and only very few bits are exciting, and ‘PLINK‘ by SQPR falls under the latter category.
The song has some a really attractive lead guitar in it with a riff that makes the toes tingle, which is the main hook here, however the band have more than one attraction. The vocals are distinct and commanding as lead signer Peter Harris Hawk powers out the words “I’ve become undone, I’m not what I was” as the fuzzy guitar behind it emphasizes the drama of the song. A nod of the head has to go towards the bass and drums as they’re perfect for the song as both are such important components to the song, as they refuse to linger in the background and become an afterthought.
The song comes out 20/5/2016 on Elevant Music Limited, so make sure you grab this track as soon as it’s released!
