The Heavies - Bitemark c/w Flashbackdotdotdotdot
artworkThis two song demo shows very good writing and playing, and quite a bit of chemistry in the performance. The melodies are quite good, and the arranging well thought out. While the drums are excellent, they are too prominent in the mix, as if often the case with demos for some reason.
Picks: Bitemark, Flashback

Track by Track Review


Bitemark dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

This is a fine instro that bares multiple listenings. It captivates and compels, and runs really nice along with an ocean view drive. Very good writing and playing. "Bitemark" is slightly sad, and sports a infectious imagery and energy. It's is a very cool song that's surf and not surf. Lots of surfisms and whammy chords and imagery, and dryer tone with melodic rock sensibility.

Flashback dotdotdotdot
Surf (Instrumental)

Upbeat and aquatic, with positive energy and twang, "Flashback" is rock solid, thought not as infectious as "Bitemark." This very enjoyable track is nicely played and arranged. It seems a little sad and dramatic in a very coastal way.
