“Without Fear or Favour”
As is the case with many young bands, I’ve had a frustrating time trying to track down any biography information in regards to Manchester’s Embers. In this case, the music will truly have to speak for itself. Even watching their videos – a trio of which were released late last year – it’s apparent that these blokes prefer to remain a mystery. But unlike WU LYF, it doesn’t comes off like a forced marketing ploy hatched by some LDN management type.
Whilst the three tunes on the band’s Soundcloud page are all brilliant fuzz-soaked masterpieces that would make Spiritualized or the Jesus and Mary Chain proud, “Tunnel Vision” is my clear favourite. It’s an epic track that could raise the dead with its crushing twists and turns. We can’t wait to hear more from this lot.
