Embers - Tunnel Vision / Sins Unknown
Manchester band Embers have announced their first single release, double A-side vinyl ‘Tunnel Vision’/ ‘Sins Unknown’ which will be released on the 24th September. Both songs have plenty of grit, and bleak, spacious, atmospheric nature perhaps spurred by the notorious Northern drizzle.
‘Tunnel Vision’ starts with a sinister echo of guitar, soon accompanied by rumbling drums. The song develops into a huge, 5 minute long epic of loud, melodic guitars and urgent, reverberating vocals accompanied by a good helping of fuzz. ‘Sins Unknown’ is even more atmospheric in its build up, with a huge, frantic guitar and choir pushing the song to its climax.
This music is passionate and apocalyptic, with accomplished instrumentation and addictive, striking vocals. Two bleak but brilliant songs from a very exciting band, and definitely worth a listen.
