PRESENCE OF MIND
Frontiers / Now & Then
Produced by: Audu Obaje & L.W.
Released: OUT NOW / Website
Closest Relative: Shotgun Symphony
Lost Weekend are another band that will slot into the Now & Then history quite nicely.|
Now & Then have always kept fans of pomp AOR happy with at least one release a year.
Previously we have had the Dante Fox releases, The Promise and Shotgun Symphony.
Fans of those are recommended to check out Lost Weekend.
The band feature a strong vocalist in Paul Uttley, who with a dark and deep voice takes some getting used to, but there are rewards if you do persevere.
The guys feature and equal mix of big keyboards, guitars and a generally big pompus sound. The songs thankfully all have good hooks and catchy choruses that will see them pick up a following.
|PRODUCTION: 75%||SONGS: 80%||VIBE: 79%||ATTITUDE: 81%||ESSENTIAL FOR: Fans of pomp / keyboard driven AOR.|
