New Ruins – Symptoms

They may have coined paranormal rock to define themselves and I can see the logic given that ‘Symptoms’ comes from a time long since departed. I’m thinking early 90’s dream pop but with a slightly frayed edge. In circumstances like this lyrics generally take a back seat but that’s not to say that the vocals aren’t what makes it special. And so it comes to pass that Caleb noises like he means it and it hardly matters that we know not what he sings. It’s just better to go with the flow and lap up the wonderful sway in the mosaic of sound. Very, very nice and the sort of composition that generally finds favour in our top songs of the year each December. KD
