The Promise Ring - Wood, Water

The Promise Ring - Wood, Water




Released: N/A
Added: 2012-12-15



After living and releasing stuff with Jade Tree Records, The Promise Ring went departed ways from that label, choosing a new and unknown label, named Anti, which is not truly unknown, just a division of Epitaph Records, and now the four guys are releasing a new album named Wood/Water, which is , according to everyone and to the band itself, the best work from The Promise Ring, even tought it is very different from such albums as Very Emergency and Nothing Feels Good that gave the band some notoriety. Wood / Water is an obscure and deep record, from the music to the lyrics; musically, it's all done by slow and sometimes acoustic guitars and bass and a soft drums, and some songs like Size Of Your Life , Stop Playing Guitar and Bread & Coffee made me think of Travis and Coldplay styile of playing music: with a lot of different influences, but to bring out simple music, at least at the first listen. Lyrically, Davey vonBohlen, the singer, talks a lot about his bad expirience with a benign tumor, that was luckily cured with some operations, and sons like Wake Up April and Stop Playing Guitars deals with his personal life expiriences. In general, I'd say the twelve songs on this record are the best example of music around today, influenced only by the will of The Promise Ring to play and express emotions, without caring of labels, selling records, industries and all that music business. If you have enough guts to open your mind, here it is the record you need.|
