WE REVIEW THE NEW ALBUM FROM THE SURVIVAL CODE – WHISPERS OF WOE

If you’re looking for a rock release to start 2024 with, The Survival Code’s new album might be just what you need. The songs might hit close to home for a lot of us as they skillfully delve deep into the human experience and the trials of navigating the music industry.

While the album is composed of 12 different tracks, there are four that particularly stand out. Firstly, “Never Knew You Existed” is a song that represents the struggles of being an unknown artist in the vast musical landscape. It kicks off with mesmerizing vocals and harmonies, topped with a long intro that showcases the musicians’ skills.

Then, “We Are Just Fooling Ourselves” stands out as one of the album’s most introspective tracks. This one explores the complexities of a past relationship that seemed perfect on paper but lacked authenticity in reality. While this song is quieter on the instrumental side, it is perfectly balanced with the depth and power of the lyrics.

The catchy “Haunted By Myself” is about all the negative feelings we all get about ourselves at some point. The struggle is not only with other people’s expectations but also with the constant idea that can never escape from ours. It is also the song that shows the best the singer’s different vocal ranges with a balance between the verses and the chorus.

Surprisingly, “Digging Your Own Grave” takes a positive turn despite its heavy topics of making bad decisions and facing the consequences. With this track, the instrumentation is more upbeat, the lyrics are lighter and there is a sharp contrast to the other songs.

Throughout “Whispers of Woe,” The Survival Code showcases their growth, resilience, and talent. The album’s themes of making tough decisions, facing heartbreak, and navigating life’s challenges are sure to resonate with listeners. That’s where we find the magic of music – The Survival Code manages to sing our lives.

For fans of alternative rock, Foo Fighters, Feeder, and Biffy Clyro, or if you’re looking for a reflective journey through the highs and (mostly) lows of life, I can only recommend “Whispers of Woe”.
