The Early November - 20. A table is laid out for a party with a band name banner and ballons in the shape of a 2 and 0.

The Early November

With a tricksy beat, ‘Denent’ is a rhythmic experience during the verses and a slow drive in the chorus. Atmospheric and melodic, it’s an instant classic for The Early November.

Drummers the world over will be sitting in tense discussion over whether this is a three-four or a four-four with triplets. Lap drummers will be flailing along, trying to sync to the beat. Music lovers will simply be rejoicing in their creativity. ⦗Bap – dop-bobba – bap bap bap – doppa – bap – doppa⦘𝄌… if you can say it, you can play it, as drum instructor Dave Cherry always told me.

With this beat pushing through the verse, like a rocky canyon of twists and turns, we suddenly emerge onto the wide-open tundra that is the chorus. Straight-up beat, big open chords, and melodic.

Bring it back before it’s gone
That feeling you felt before you had it all
Wasn’t there at all
Pull the rug before I walk
That feeling you felt before you’re gonna fall
Wasn’t there at all

The middle section has a chunky bass and two guitars that converge on harmonic notes. It’s proper clever stuff, but, more importantly, it sounds great.

The Early November will release their new album, Twenty, on 14th October 2022.
