The Search – ‘Extras’
The Search is an indie-rock band hailing from Sweden. Their superb latest album ‘Extras’ has been released today, 25th February, and it is a release you do not want to miss!
‘Halt’ opens the album to jangly guitars which have been mixed to either side of the sonic spectrum. We adore the vocal performance; it is enticing and draws the audience in. As the song evolves, so does the fantastic instrumentation.
We adore ‘Writing On The Wall’; it is a track filled with vivid colour. The layered guitars and vocals are full of character and charm; it is a song that will have the listener reaching for the repeat button!
‘Bunny’ is another stand out song; from a delicate piano opening, the vocals take the reins of the piece. It is a track that takes the listener on a journey.
‘Does It Resonate’ closes the release and brings the album full circle. The Search knows how to write an album that moves the audience and we are sure it will win them an army of new fans.
In addition, the mix, production and master of ‘Extras’ are excellent. The production adds extra life to already superb tracks, and together the team have produced a body of work that will stand the test of time.
The Search has had different line-ups over its history. Razmig Tekey is the backbone of the outfit, and on ‘Extras’, he has been joined by Erik Nyberg, Johann Bernövall, and Stephen Burt. They are all excellent musicians in their respective fields, but when they come together, magic happens.
The Search has an impressive back catalogue of music too. After hearing ‘Extras’, we can not wait to check out past releases! They are a band who are here to stay, and we can not wait to hear what they will do next.
So make sure that you listen to ‘Extras’ this weekend. It is a hard-hitting release that takes the listener on a journey during its 12 superb tracks.
