UK band Wisecrack return with fiery rock thunderbolt ‘The Grief Dance’

English Rockers Wisecrack are back with their new song and it’s what we have been waiting for called ‘The Grief Dance‘.

The project formerly based in Lincoln in the UK, has been playing since 2012 and has released two full length albums, Pining For The Road (2012) and Whiskey, No Mixer (2014). Briefly putting the project on pause after their second full-length, Matt Wise turned his hands to drumming in arguably two of the UK’s best punk bands– Crazy Arm, and The Human Project. Now with the attention fully back, this is the time for Wisecrack to show their stuff.

The Grief Dance‘ is an acoustic journey that starts off with some fine guitar riffs that soon introduce us to the intricate lyrics. From there, burning rubber illuminates from the speakers as the band fully express themselves. The UK band are on full volume for this one as they tear through the stage on this fine track. I love the solos and the skill level is clearly high from this very experienced band. Now based in South West London, Wisecrack provide us with a look to 2021 when fiery live gigs can happen again.

Carry The Crown release new single ‘Desire’

Rock has always been about dynamic and impact, but it can also be about melody and infectiousness, something that Lincolnshire’s Carry The Crown are more than aware of. They are very much a modern day rock band but it is that small weave of pop awareness that runs through the heart of their songs which makes them much more than just a foot on the monitor rock band trading in past glories.

Desire is that perfect storm of widescreen grandeur, full force deliveries, perfectly executed dynamics and anthemic choruses and at the eye, the hub around which this all revolves, is a melodic heart, one that provides the hooks and addictive melodies. It is this magic ingredient, that pushes their appeal beyond the run of the mill rock fan and into more commercial waters; it crosses old rock demarcations and appeals to a much wider audience. But the clever thing is that it still ticks more than enough of the right boxes for the old school diehards and the younger rock underground to approve. Rock music with mass appeal, how cool is that?
