Blue and green record exploding into shards

The Gullivers

Unfortunately the recording of this CD makes it sound like it’s been produced in a small tin can! The quality of production does make a huge difference to a band’s sound and this attempt doesn’t complement The Gullivers overall finish.

Putting aside the recording ‘Black And White’ has a hooky melody with a vocal that hints at the Arctic Monkeys. Continuing with a similarly catchy rhythm, ‘Dilemma’ is certainly not a song for someone with a lisp as there’s a bit of a tongue twister to wrap your mouth around.

‘Needless to Say’ is by far the best track on this single. This song offers a groovy bass guitar riff but sadly could do with some tidying up of the vocal.

Throughout this record I strained to hear the music and my only advice to The Gullivers is to get a better recording done in the future, as their overall sound will improve greatly. There’s no denying there’s something working for the band but sadly you just can’t hear it.
