What’s not to like about a trio from Manchester that’s specialising in their own sound? The One Eyed General’s Bandit are doing just what it says on the tin. With a distinctive sound that could be described as indie rock meets alternative blues, the trio creates a wide arrangement that illuminates pure passion. It’s not every day you see a band that works so hard to get to where they are. Many artists nowadays expect stardom to come on a silver platter, but The One Eyed General’s Bandit are working their way to the top, and with “Feed”, it’s only a matter of time before they reach the highest of crowds.
Straight onto the scene, “Feed” features a stunning guitar tone that’s filled with grit-fueled adrenaline. As soon as the vocals kick in, they feel slightly not as prominent as hoped. That’s the only thing I’d say to improve slightly would be to make the vocals a tad brighter and add a slight reverb to bring out a wider production. Saying that, you can still hear word for word and understand the story well.
Dynamically, the track stays a similar level throughout and features different drum patterns, harmonies and structures to elevate that little bit higher. Holding the audience’s attention, the 4:26minute long track will keep your gaze with its passionate indie essence. As the first track from The One Eyed General’s Bandit that I’ve personally heard, they’ve fed me the track on a golden plate, and now, I want more!
If this is the first track you’ve heard from the trio, search into their previous music, you won’t be disappointed with what you find!
