THE CONWAVES! (Wayne's World style)
Now that I have had the pleasure of meeting these guys, listening to their digital music and hearing and seeing them perform live I'll say this; these guys are going places and I mean fast. While influenced by older styles and not being afraid to dip into their musical backgrounds, The Conwaves are a fresh sound and a force to be reckoned with. The Mules, their lead single, has a heavy beat and killer tones. The song puts you in the mind set of being on a road trip into the unknown and loving every single second of it. The Conwaves take you away with their amazing melodies and killer vocals. If you listen closely, it sounds like the album might actually be taking you on some sort of story or journey. In true itslikemusictomymouth fashion I listened to the boys EP about 10 times in a row. Each song back to back (if you know me and know my reviewing style, this is nothing new). When a band or musician in general can take your mind away from reality and bring you in to this world of made up beautiful lyrics, you know you have something special. I was impressed with the fact that the four guys that make up The Conwaves, all being fairly young, had such a wide range of musical depth to them. To find a band that truly listens to the men and women who lead the music seen before them and take notes, is a band to watch out for. Now, will this band ever take the #1 place of my beloved Twenty One Pilots, I am afraid to say no. But did they impress me and leave me wanting more in a good way? You bet.
