The Boy from the Crowd

Revelator (Digital Single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is pretty cool rocking music. This is just one song, leaving me wishing I could hear more from this artist.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2014  Volume 5 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Revelator

The guitar sound that opens this (and takes it again mid track) makes me think of Jimi Hendrix. As it works out to the song proper, though, this feels almost like a funky version of The Prodigy. A big part of that comes from the vocals which also remind of me of Johnny Lydon in PIL. There is a cool groove to this, almost classic rock in nature, though. It has some really cool retro musical textures in a lot of way. Yet that vocal arrangement lends a more modern sound. This is good stuff.

(Editor's Note - Music Street Journal is set up for the allocation of albums, not singles - particularly not one-song singles. So, in the instances, like this one, where we've covered single song releases, we've had to make some adaptations for formatting. In the case of this one, just imagine both track review and overall review reading as one set of copy. )
