Song Review - Whitewash

by Halycon Drive

Doge review...

Actual review...

Sure, our good friend Doge sums 'Whitewash' up quite nicely and with 'much succinctness', but we could talk about how great this new Halycon Drive track is for days. The Melbourne-based duo, made up of Max and Michael, becomes the latest Australian act to make a grand declaration of their arrival with their crazy/good new single. 'Whitewash' is one of those intriguing tracks you'll find yourself listening to on repeat as you find more to love about it. I'm sure you can decide what you love about it, but since you're reading a review I might as well tell you what I enjoyed. That's why you're here, right? Oh... you just came for the Doge and the music. I'm going to tell you anyway. 

The moments with a fuller sound than two people should be able to create are just as exciting as the quieter ones where your attention is drawn to the restrained vocal performance. You're waiting for the moment where everything will boil over and it comes with the lines, "I won't forget the feeling, I won't forget the night, That I followed defeat, In to your eyes." And then everything's this perfect blur of musical goodness and you're heading back to the start so you can do it all again. You know what that's a sign of? Good times, great music. Duh. I don't know much about these guys, but after listening to 'Whitewash' I certainly want to know more. Here's hoping we get to hear a whole lot from Halcyon Drive in 2014.
