Guitar Pop from Candybomber
I was really into the Kensingtons, though they came onto my radar just as they were seeming to slow things down. Now that they’re geographically separated, Stewart has a brand new project, Candybomber. The band have just shared this new single, which, to me, recalls a more melodic Wedding Present. You still have these distorted guitars jangling and ringing out loudly, tearing through your speakers. But, the song’s core revolves around the gravitational pull of the melody that shines through Stewart’s vocals; it’s the classic loud/quiet juxtaposition, and it’s executed to perfection in this tune. Turn this one up super loud, and don’t look back at that whole in your speakers.
