Reliably informed

A full of life, emotional piece, Newcastle’s The Avelons release their second single – Setting Sons.

Sonically much tighter and cleaner than their previous single, with semantics revolving around loss and the pensive feelings such an emotion brings, the track incorporates a nostalgic sound to its sonic environment that further emphasises the themes. I frequently found myself reminiscing while being sucked into the song’s engaging narrative.

The held back vocal performance could be seen as a detriment, but it elevates the intimacy of the track, as the band understand the perfect points to raise the intensity in the structure, which culminates in an excellent bridge that truly flexes the artistic strength of this group.
