Lady Rain - Ten Feet Tall

Lady Rain
Ten Feet Tall

Lady Rain are a six-strong Birmingham band with a very current sound that adds the faintest of Ska references to an indie sound that would find comparisons with bands such as The Ordinary Boys.

‘Ten Feet Tall’ is an up-tempo and up-beat song with busy drums pumping the song along in a flurry of guitars and reedy bass. The chorus belts out a fine vocal line that’s bound to prick at the hairs on the back of your arms ( if you have hair there).

The only downside to this recording is a rather unflattering mix, which leaves it all a bit too thin – which does something of an injustice to the bass and the vocal, the two chaps at either end of the frequency stakes. However, I managed to help this out by whacking up the bass-boost on my stereo, so even the fastest mastering job would sort out this problem.

This is a rather decent song that would sound right at home amongst the latest batch of britpop that’s currently drifting on the waves that surge up the charts to break somewhere on the top 20 beach.
