Newly minted, Stand Atlantic’s ‘switchblade’ is an interesting mix of the familiar and the new. There’s the precision style and the stuttering moments that we all know and love, but there’s something altogether more stompy about this single.
It all starts with palm-muted guitars and Fraser’s vocal, the verse is tight and the chorus is anthemic, but that rocking beat slows things down for a powerful punch. It’s got a certain feral vibe, both sonically and thanks to the lyrical violence. The solo is a majestic assault of notes, lasts about eight seconds, and exits stage left, pursued by the chorus.
The lyrics are pretty relentless in this song, conjuring images of sweaty crowds chanting along to the anthem. This is a great big new single from Stand Atlantic and their forthcoming album is beginning to take shape.Watch Stand Atlantic – switchblade
