The appropriately named first track ‘Getaway’ starts proceedings with a journey through the 80’s mainly with its sci-fi synth heavy passages, all very chilled out until suddenly interrupted in the midway point by a big funky style bass line and, is that the riff from ‘Hot Blooded’ by Foreigner?
‘Reconnect’ is the debut of full time new vocalist Petter Carlsen and is the most striking change in direction as his clean melodic style along with the straightforward quiet/loud dynamic employed by the band here has a very post-hardcore feel to it, even in the mild crescendo that closes out that showcases his impressive range. This is also showcased on the much more reflective and subdued ‘Rewind’, the main building block being his vocals and a piano line with only a minor (yet delightful) build-up in the music itself.
