The Society - Tears [Single] (2017) - Review

Band: The Society
Title: Tears [Single]
Release date: 22 February 2017
Label: Self-Released

Tracklist:
01. Tears

The legendary drummer Paul Gilmartin is back with a brand new band called The Society. Paul is a well known name in the post-punk scene, mostly because he was member of the cult British band The Danse Society in the early 80s and left the band in January 2014. Now he returns to the scene with his new band named, guess what, The Society. This new band of his is bearing the true musical essence and the legacy that he adopted through the years. The debut single, "Tears", was just released and it really shows Gilmartin's new act as a post-punk band of excellent quality. Beside Gilmartin behind the drums, the line-up of The Society is formed by Jonathan Cridford (vocals), Elliot Wheeler (guitar), Ade Clarke (bass) and Darran Guy (synth).

When I heard the music my first impression was that this is excellent! The quality and experience of the members is undeniable. You can feel the claw and the passion. The singer is in my point of view very interesting and differential from what we are used in post-punk. After seeing the promo video, I was sure that Paul Gilmartin was right in choosing his partners and especially in choosing the singer. Jonathan Cridford with his sweet, kind of a "lost boy" voice, plus the theatrical performance that expresses the feeling of music in his body language is perfect. Congrats for that, I'm seeing a great potential and I’m looking forward for a stylish post-punk album from The Society in the near future.

p.s. You can check out the “Tears” music video which was filmed and produced by Martin Aylward at this location. The single is also available to download for free on Bandcamp.

Band: Near Earth Orbit
Album title: Trans Neptunian Objects
Release date: 9 October 2015
Label: Solar Lodge

We are back in the future, exactly in the year 2034. The second chapter of Near Earth Orbit invites us again to experience an imaginary movie created by the force of sound. Now the mother Earth is left behind, it went into ashes; do you remember the last words on End Of All Existence from the communication between the Mission Control Centre and Ashley Dayour? "OMG the apocalypse is fucking beautiful!", Ashley said in the end of the of the album which was released in May this year, and then it was only silence... Now Artaud Seth (Garden Of Delight, Merciful Nuns, Lutherion) and Ashley Dayour (Whispers In The Shadow, The Devil & The Universe, Coma Divine,...) are deep in the space. Trans Neptunian Objects reveals why the E.D.E.N. mission was discharged there and how it got there, the significance of the Einstein-Rosen Bridge and also which part a pre-human device buried deep in the desert sand has got to play in all of this. It's almost impossible to separate the first Near Earth Orbit's chapter, End Of All Existence, and the second one, Trans Neptunian Objects. Musically the new effort by Artaud and Ashley differs a bit from the previous one. While the biggest emphasis on the first chapter was on dreadful apocalyptic atmosphere, now the two based their sound a bit more on powerful, still very cinematic and atmospheric doomy gothic rock. Trans Neptunian Objects is a strong and dark album from every possible point of view, it's a solid and extraordinary release, perfectly capturing the feeling and experience of being in the vastness of space, yet it's very well produced piece of unique sonic darkness that shouldn't be missed out.
