Ash – Tracers (Single Review)

Posted in IRISH NOISE!, Music, Single Review with tags , , , , , , on November 24, 2009 by Tickets There

Fourth in Ash’s A – Z series which they’re currently on tour promoting. The guys are set to release 26 singles over the next year and the first three, Joy Kicks Darkness, Arcadia and True Love 1980 have all been strong additions to the Co. Down boys repertoire and for those impatient people out there, Tracers is just as strong.  

Tim and the lads have a god given knack for writing semi-down toned borderline grunge anthems and combining that sound with the most perfect pop sensibilities known to man and the hard rock guitar ability needs to pull it all off. On Trackers we find the bands shinning talent for catchy song writing as well as their ability to use different styles to deliver their famous ballads.

Unlike Arcadia, the song is a little more relaxed and restrained which adds the difference every band needs in their writing. Muted guitars, regular changes and the lack of a full on guitar driven chorus explosion leave the song one of the best they’ve release so far. It’s heavy though. The whole song bursts with overtones of the eminent peak getting closer and then they cut loose with a galaxy of other instruments to drive the point home rather than relying on age old tactics and formulated standards.

What would we have done differently? We would have started a band and cried because we’re not as good as Ash. Keep up the great works lads.

See you all in a fortnight for E*.
