Swayed (digital single)

Review by Gary Hill

This is a new single from an interesting artist. I've included this under progressive rock more because of its artsy nature than a real progressive rock connection. That said, there are a lot of comparisons that can be made to modern electronic based prog. Whatever you call this, though, the song is compelling and quite powerful.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2018  Volume 6 at lulu.com/strangesound.

Track by Track Review
Swayed
Electronic and percussive elements open this piece. I like the vocal line that comes over the top. It has an intriguing sound. The cut works forward into an almost space rock kind of element. It gets into some harder rocking territory as it continues. There is a definite pop rock meets alternative edge to this, but the electronic elements and definite unusual edge to it make this more of an artsy kind of number. It's classy stuff for sure.
