Track Review: Basement Revolver - 'Baby'

Ontario trio Basement Revolver have released their gorgeously dense new single 'Baby'. The band are Chrisy Hurn (guitar/vocals), Nimal Agalawatte (bass/synth) and Brandon Munro (drums) and the track is the first off their debut LP released on the 24th of August via Fear of Missing Out Records and Sonic Unyon Records

The track is a plodding, down-tempo affair with heavy reverbs and piercing lead vocals. The grandiose nature of 'Baby' is something we weren't initially expecting from the three-piece and it grabbed our attention instantly. The most striking element of Basement Revolver's sound has to be Hurn's lead vocals; her passion and tones cut through the thick, murky instrumentation perfectly.

Hurn says, 'Baby was written at a point in my relationship where I was so happy with my partner and with the things in my life at that point – but I felt an overall dissatisfaction and sadness that I couldn’t explain.'. The chorus clearly states how Hurn was feeling and the direct lyricism is perfectly accentuated by Hurn's passionate delivery.

Musically the track is brilliant. The melodic nature of the instrumentation coupled with the emotive vocals means this tune packs a punch. It's noisy and abrasive at times and could benefit from a slight shift in dynamic, but to be honest, we're nitpicking here.

This is a fantastic teaser track for Basement Revolver's debut record released in August. If you're a fan of noisy, emo-rock then this is the perfect sad track for you.
