The Cornerstones – Smack me in the face – Unsigned Bands

Intro

Got in touch with this band quite a while back, and decided that I should review them.The four piece hailing from Uxbridge in the UK, and they consist of Richard Ruth, Dan Bennion, Kyle Radbone, Ryan Pincott. They’re an rock/indie band with influences being The Stone Roses, Oasis, The Kinks, The Who and The Beatles which you can clearly hear in their music.

The Song

The song ‘smack me in the face’ is the fourth one of theirs (to my knowledge), and has quite a lot to live up to after their previous three, which I strongly recommend listening to, very catchy pieces of music with some nice riffs in place, with a distorted guitar in the back ground, this is prominent in ‘This is how it ends’. ‘Smack me in the face’, steps away from their other stuff as it has a piano featuring in it, which works quite well with the guitar. The singer although sounding slightly like Liam Gallagher he has more of singing element to his voice, a lot more harmony in his voice compared to Liam, but there are definite comparisons to it. Moving on from his voice, the song is quite slow paced, and can be quite haunting in places especially in the verses.After listening to it the chorus really stands out in my mind, which is always a good sign because it means it’s engrained in your mind. I think they’ve showed some versatility with this song because as I stated previously they’ve stepped away from something they’d normally do.

Overall

A really beautiful song, i found it better when I was listening to it with earphones in, else you get too much noise pollution an ruins the song. Think we can expect a lot more from this band, especially with the three previous songs, listen to them. They’re also working on an album at the moment, I will keep you updated when that will be out, also if you can go to their next gig, Sat Dec 1st at Trinity in Harrow, West London. Entry £5, If you can, just go, enjoy yourself while I slave away at work.

Get behind this band, see them when you can, i know I will be looking out for them.
