04/03/2013: The Gang – Mania

In the city of Canterbury there is a gang.  You won’t catch them defacing public property or running large scale drug distribution operations, but you will find them making plenty of good noises.  This gang, in fact The Gang, have just released their new E.P BLVDEVARD.  It’s a diverse collection indie enthused guitar music with a brittish edge you should get in your life

Our free download this week is BLVDEVARD’s opener Mania.  Mania is short at just over two minutes but won’t fail to leave it’s mark on your ears.  A chiming guitar opening soon turns into something more alert and frenzied.  The drumming then addseven more to this alert and frenzied sound.  Just as your ears have adjusted  to this Mania shifts again into a more calm and drum lead verse.  Over the top of this are vocals which manage to fuse a sense of desperation with cool sounding indie vocals.  As Mania draws to a close the guitars return like a sequel to Planet of the Apes which is actually good and end the song abruptly.

Get your free download of Mania and the whole BLVDEVARD E.P here.
