Face The King’s vocals have a Muse meets Radiohead who lives next door to The Fray kind of sound to them. It’s an interesting mix. There’s something else in there I can quite pinpoint…maybe a little Chris Isaac? Either way, he sounds good. When he reaches for those high notes and his voice starts to break up, but still maintaining pitch, that’s just butter.
Gotta love those rhythmic delayed guitars that open up the song. I know The Edge has just completely raped that method, but I still love it. Face The King isn’t the kind of band I would normally listen to, but you have to recognize talent when you hear it. They certainly know how to build a beautiful wall of sound. This is the kind of song you hear at the end of a movie when the good guy is about to lose it, then makes that Rocky Balboa rally and just starts wrecking shit. Let’s go boxing.
Thanks to Civil Pilots for the recommendation
