Portland, Oregon is the home of indie-rock band The Recognitions and they smash through the guitar strings with their new track called ‘Silent Alarm‘.
The Recognitions have taken many forms over the years from folks days, busking vagabonds, and now to indie rock groups and after a long break, they reunited with a pact: to examine and rewire all of their burgeoning tastes, from neo classical to krautrock; from proto punk to film scores, into their own musical language. This band is that pact and their debut is their first expression of that language. I love this energy and the fact that they know that it’s their time. I hope their music gets picked up for an epic movie soundtrack. This quality deserves that.
Taken off ‘Nervosism’, The Recognitions from Portland in the USA bring us such a deep gem with lots to think about on ‘Silent Alarm‘. This is the sound of a quality band who’s pure vocals are perfectly intertwined to the winding riffs and tremendous drum-work on this dazzler.
