Artist: Pure Love
Song: Bury My Bones
Genre: Rock/alternative rock/punk rock
Pure Love's debut single finally arrives and it has been well worth the long wait. For anyone who had seen the awesome YouTube videos of the Bush Hall gig in February, an appetizer of the upcoming album for the former Gallows lead singer Frank Carter and former Hope Conspiracy and Suicide File guitarist Jim Carroll. The duo have crafted an anthemic rock song that is lively, uplifting and catchy as fuck.
Short and snappy at just under 3 minutes, Carter opens with the lines "I so sick of singing about hate", and it sets the wonderfully pure rock sound that this track has going for it. It is sing-a-long stuff all the way and a drastic change; just ask anyone who knows of his previous output with Gallows. His vocals are as impressive as ever (the surprise was lost when hearing the terrific performance at Bush Hall) and are delivered with aplomb. Carroll's riff is big and I found myself air-guitaring at various points through the song in appreciation of the accessible sound that he has crafted. I can't recommend this song enough, it brings back memories of the big rock songs of the past and a time gone-by. If the rest of the album is anywhere near as accomplished and confident as this track is, we may have a monster of an album on our hands.
The song is also available for free download from their official website here.
