LOST WITHOUT CAUSE – TOURNIQUET
Released 1st May 2012
Words: Charlie Wallis
The latest offering from Lost Without Cause, “Tourniquet” kicks in with a decent amount of intensity with an admirably adept level of songwriting skill. Vocally this band is interesting with powerful lyrics catch enough to capture the imagination of the current alternative music scene with a nice blend of singing and screaming in the choruses. The lyrical creativity and musicality of this band makes for an extremely satisfying listen, which begs for repeat play through.
Dynamically there’s plenty to keep the listening interested with big epic singing melodies interweaved with quiet building passages. The song really comes into its own when the half time chorus kicks in, truly evoking a sense of how the song would feel in a live setting. If one thing could be improved it would be the guitar sound which taints the overall experience slightly.
With everything taken into consideration this is clearly a band with an awful lot to offer the UK music scene and “Tourniquet” is a sterling effort from a band that have the potential to go very far indeed.
