The Rock-itt : December 2011
CD Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Northern Beaches ‘Seek the Silence’ are showing that punk rock is alive and kicking and have finally found the right ingredients. They are ecstatic about their new creation titled “Not My Fault”. The five track disc has som e really catchy tunes and lyrics which I know the Punk Rock fraternity will surely em brace. I thought of band “Blink 182” and “Cheshire Cat” when I first inserted the disc into my player and heard the first track “Fairway” kick in. It was obvious that the band was looking for a polished modern day pop punk sound which they have obviously found in “Not My Fault”. The second track, “Sorry Love” (But I really need to resign) is the one that caught my interest most. It had a cracking opening riff and being a guitar fanatic, enjoyed hearing the guitar neck being strangled. With it being half the pace of the first track more of a rock vibe was created which seemed to satisfy my rock and roll leanings. The following tracks “Mr Krabs”, “Not My Fault” and “Jill” all combine well to compliment the first two offerings. This self penned CD by the band themselves shows the great potential that has been waiting to surface and the boys have certainly put a lot of effort into this one. The strength in “Not My Fault” lies mainly in the cleverness of the lyrics and a big hand should be given to the nice guitar riffs that are constantly present. The Band are Danen (vocals), Jonny (lead guitar), Dan (vocals & rhythm guitar), Ben (bass) and Sam (drums). The CD was recorded by Jonny Fraser and Matt Delaney at SAE Institute Sydney. Mixed and mastered by Jonny Fraser and the artwork design by “Seek the Silence”. The CD launch will be on Saturday night 3rd December at the “Lansdowne Hotel” and not to disappoint their younger U18’s fans, they will be doing a launch at Northern Beaches famous YOYO’s youth venue at Frenches Forest on December 2 nd .
