These boys have big shoes to fill. Manchester, also the home of greats like the Smiths and the Stone Roses, brings you new band Longview as well. Let me say one thing, Long-View has no trouble filling these shoes. I say this about almost every band I post, but I have never meant it more than now…I can’t say enough about this band. Signed to Columbia Records here in the states, and rightfully so, the band still hasn’t really been able to leave it’s mark. Poor marketing, bad tours? Who knows. But one thing is for sure, it’s not the music that is holding this band back. Rob McVey’s vocals teamed with his band’s instrumention is a beautfiful combination. The music is so ethereal, engaging and downright incredible that you all need to take notice. I decided to post the song “I Would” because it really is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard. Also, I’ve got two acoustic tracks that the band recorded for FUSE. Anyways, I must tell you one thing. The acoustic tracks are indeed a special treat, but don’t do the band justice. They don’t get across the HUGE sound this band is able to create on their debut album “Mercury.” So, as most of the other things I post, I highly suggest you get your hands on some more tracks (buy the disc, iTunes), you will not be disappointed. As of now, the band isn’t touring, but if they happen to tour near you anytime soon, please go. I’ve seen the band live and they are capable of recreating quite beautifully this HUGE sound I’ve been blowing about.
please, let me know what you guys think. Want me to post more bands like this?
