Reliably informed

There’s a kaleidoscope of Britpop sounds in NTGB’s The End We All Know. A jangle-fest intro that’s part Stone Roses, part The Coral, a Taxman-esque bass riff and driving drums, close harmonies and lilting melodies. A wah-wah guitar solo that’s a little bit Ocean Colour Scene. There’s even some Animals influence in the organ solo.

All in all, it makes The End We All Know sound like a song we all know, a song that’s familiar from the first play. That’s not to say that it’s generic. There’s some really ear catching aspects to this song. The harmonies are ridiculously satisfying and the change in feel into the middle eight equally lifts the song. I’d love to see this tune performed live.
