Speaking in Shadows: Technicolour Trainwreck (Review)

Speaking in Shadows are back! The 5 piece alternative rockers from Nuneaton are back with a new song from their upcoming EP The Lies We Lead.

This is Technicolour Trainwreck

There's no waiting around SIS kick off the song straight away with a strong, fast guitar riff and a drum and bass line that keeps my fingers tapping through out. It's always great when a song starts out powerful, it makes you want to listen, to pay attention and before I'm 20 seconds in Technicolour Trainwreck has me hooked. Adam has a fantastic voice and range that he shows off through out the song, my only issue really is that sometimes I lose him, he just slips into the music at times and I find I have to listen just a little bit harder to hear him clearly. In the middle of the song it slows, Adam's voice being heard above everything else it also adds a nice diversity to powerful song. The guitar solo is just an excuse to jump around and go a little bit mad or for some of us a great chance to admire the skill Ali and Lewis.
I always think of SIS being very good with their lyrics and they not disappoint here "Technicolour trainwreak takes a hold and reminds us we're alive"  As a lyrical style it reminds me of the one used by Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low, they're not repetitive the lines changing each time with different and meaningful words.

To do a review I find myself listening to a song, over and over and over again and sometimes I begin to hate the song a little bit just out of sure overplay. This did not happen listening to Tehnicolour Trainwreck, in fact I would say I fell more in love with it each time I hit repeat.

Altogether I think Speaking in Shadows have come back with maybe their best song yet! I can't wait to hear the rest of the EP when it's released next month.
