WE REVIEW THE NEW SINGLE FROM SUSPIRE

‘Sweetness’ is the newest release from 5-piece Suspire.

They only burst onto the scene last year, with members hailing from up and down the country, but settling in Oxford.The band describe their style as ‘ambiguous introspection, to direct commentary on the mundanity of modern life’.

It’s a very melancholic track, not usually what I would match up with sweetness, but nevertheless, the vocals are soft and it’s an easy listen.

I like the tune, however, the one thing that sticks out for me is the little pulses of drums as it gets up to the chorus, in my opinion, it’s not needed.

I also think it’s a little bit too long, there aren’t any huge solos, so it could have been a little bit shorter.

The rest of it is a soothing, relaxing experience, and really, the softer side of the indie genre we wouldn’t usually get to see.

Despite it’s softer tone, it is infectious, and the more I listened, the more I liked it.

The lyrics are beautiful and you can tell they have emotional value to them, like an inner monologue sang out-loud, but better.

The artwork is fantastic, having two little gummy bears leaning on each other, it suits the title of the song, and the soft colours of it all compliment the track.

Overall, a beautiful track, it’s raw, it’s delicate and it’s well put together, an impressive addition to their building catalogue.
