What’s up Warriors and today I’m going to be discussing a new song and a new band that has come across my hands today and they are Seven Spies.
So before we carry on let’s get a little background info on this band.
Formed in London by childhood friends, Seven Spies are a three-piece band looking to infiltrate the ears of the world. Consisting of David Blomiley (vocals, guitar, piano), Olly Brown (drums, backing vocals) and an ever-rotating bassist taking the form of old band members and musical friends, you can expect to witness a healthy dose of melodic riffs and anthemic choruses.
Seven Spies fuses the best of rock bands such as Muse and Radiohead, while highlighting vocals reminiscent of Jeff Buckley and Bjork. Billie Eilish’s use of intimate multi-tracking also makes an appearance throughout their music, along with the big riffs and fuzzy guitars of Rage Against the Machine and Jack White. This amalgam of diverse artists and influences, allows Seven Spies to carve out a pocket of sound that is entirely their own.
Self-produced by Blomiley and Brown in their bedroom studio and mastered by John Davis (The Killers, Lana del Rey, Royal Blood, Lewis Capaldi, Gorillaz) at Metropolis Studios, “Chameleon” delivers an intimate, yet polished result. Featuring gritty, raucous guitars, tenacious melodies and textured harmonies, showcasing Blomiley’s impressive vocals, “Chameleon” is an energetic release, bursting with both conviction and charisma.
So My thoughts on the song?
So from the intro to the song, you can hear the Royal Blood influence conflicted within the song and when the Vocals drop on the track you feel that Muse feeling throughout the song making it feel like a mash-up of the bands which forms Seven Spies.
The song itself is well built and produced the mix on the audio is great and the song itself is quite a good one to listen to especially with the effects and tone on the guitar and bass giving it that different grunge tone within the indie genre.
I would recommend this to friends and people if they’re looking for a new band to give a whirl especially if they’re interested in Royal Blood.
