Drop Tuned – ‘Lost’
Album Review By Adam McCann
Independent Release/Hard Rock/Heavy Metal
Drop Tuned started as a project between two friends and it hasn’t taken the duo long to emerge from the musical hotbed of Gothenburg to present their debut EP ‘Lost’ to the world.
‘Lost’ sounds immensely fresh and modern, with the EP managing to walk the line perfectly between heavy metal, hard rock and melodic rock. Due to this, ‘Lost’ has the ability to deliver three songs that are hugely accessible, oozing with emotion and all wrapped in a production that would appeal to fans of T.N.T., Harem Scarem and Treat. Yet, this EP is not initially gripping, on the surface, all three songs manage to sound very similar, but easily within a few listens, it becomes immensely easy to fall in love with ‘Lost’; ‘Reflecting the Days’ and the title track have a simmering build up, that once engaged is difficult to put down and almost impossible to not sing along to.
However, those looking for something ‘new sounding’ will not find it here, but ultimately, who cares? With ‘Lost’, Drop Tuned are only just beginning to dip into the water and this EP is a decent foundation stone. ‘Lost’ has three lovingly crafted songs that show the talent that Drop Tuned have, it will be interesting to see where the band go from here.
