The Stationary Stationary – Sweetest of Vocals

Stationary Stationary

Central Coast indie pop threesome the Stationary Stationary once topped the Triple J unearthed indie charts with a great little track called ‘Slipping‘.

The thing that I love about this song is the sweetness of the vocals. They are so soft and tender and traverse the lyrics of love and loss so beautifully. The keys, drums and guitars are at a perfect level to allow the vocals to really shine through. Its definitely a song I would not listen to if my relationship was a bit rocky or just ended, but to the average afternoon listener its a nice little track to relax to. The other The Stationary Stationary tracks are pretty calm and enjoyable too. ‘The Blue Pen Blue’ is a pretty well written song lyrically and pays a bit of homage to the band name, which in itself is a reference to an Anberlin track (or its just a major coincidence). It also makes use of some great harmonies, all to the simple backing of an acoustic guitar. All in all its pretty blissful.

 

 

Sarajevo Rose – The Hardest Words

Sarajevo rose

Brisbane three piece rock ensemble Sarajevo Rose released their debut EP ‘Dawn Awaits’ early this year, featuring the emotional track ‘The Hardest Words’.

‘The Hardest Words’ is a classic deep rock track, that in the same vein as those produced by Anberlin. It combines a mid-tempo beat with some powerful guitar riffs to create quite an atmospheric sound that really draws you into the story being told. The lyrics tell the forever popular tale of lost love but perhaps with slightly less teenage angst as many other bands. The vocals by Luke Allison are solid and he manages to scale and fall a huge vocal range throughout the track, whilst having one of those voices that just belongs in the grunge rock genre – it sounds fantastic.

Watch the video, check out their unearthed page, and get set for the eagerly awaited next installment from these promising Aussie rockers.
