The Sesh – An Introduction and The ‘Broken’ Single Review.
The Sesh are a Dundee based band who started in 2012 as a covers project and later then followed the natural progression of slowly delving into writing their own material and coming together as a band.
With an eleven track album and an EP already under their belt, they plan on releasing the next EP in March, continuing on in the Pop-Rock, Indie vibe already laid down in previous releases, drawing influence from the likes of Biffy Clyro and Twin Atlantic, whilst occasionally adopting funky bass-lines, which could have easily been pulled straight from the Red Hot Chili Peppers themselves.
Here is their latest single, ‘Broken’.
This singles screeches into action with a beauty of a guitar lick that quickly flicks into some beefy fuzzed out chords. The vocals are reminiscent of late 80’s early 90’s Pop-Punk, especially when vocalist Kieran Donald sings the catchy, although cliche’d line, which could have been pulled from any “how-to-be-in-a-Pop-Punk-band 101 manual”, ‘still haven’t thought of the words to say but it doesn’t really matter‘.
Although a solid Alternative Rock number, the problem with ‘Broken’ lays in the production, which sounds pretty flat to to be blunt. The producer has used too much compression which takes out the energy and emotion, which by the way, the band certainly have.
It’s not hard to picture yourself jumping around or singing along at a live gig however, as the number does hold all the right pieces, they’ve just been ill-fitted by the producer.
