Call To Arms
From Aquaplaning LP
The teaser release from their awaited album Aquaplaning hits us hard. Originally called The Vernon's the Liverpool band was formed during the 1980s. Now with their new album along with their new name, the group that brought us Smithdown Road back in 1990 are working their way back to where they belong. Having bashed out a lot of great tunes in the past few years and made them work with the audience, the album is made from these prominent and recent compositions. Now living between London and Oxford, the band that formed before the internet became a music tool are perfectly adapted to this new genre of communication. Their lead song from the album, Call To Arms, is described as a plea to save the planet.
A melodic lead guitar brings out a sunny riff as the drumming lays down a groove we can get with. Vocals enter with a punk vibe that sits like The Smiths or Tears for Fears. An energetic and raw guitar sound cushions out the rock atmosphere with escapist breaks of lead. Harmony with layers of vocal bring the chorus out from the pattern as the structure repeats then leaps into a crescendo at the end. Call To Arms is a fantastic drive of upbeat brit-rock that makes us feel at home.
