The Most Terrifying Thing
The Pianist

Following up on their cracking debut ’80’s Love Affair’, Liverpool’s The Most Terrifying Thing return with something a little bit different in their second release, ‘The Pianist’.

This track is a fast and flowing pop rocker with hints of early Feeder. An atmospheric verse is tickled at the trailing edge by a build up that is hooky enough to fool you into thinking you’ve reached the chorus (until the chorus steps up to prove who’s boss!)

The vocal has been left untouched by lashings of effects and there are no backing vocals to thicken things up in the chorus. In this case though, this proves to be utter genius, allowing the strong vocal to shine in it’s own right.

‘The Pianist’ continues TMTT’s 100% record of great releases and certainly leaves this listener wanting more!
