AL BUCHANAN - 1998 - LATEST RELEASE



AL BUCHANAN

1998

Middlesbrough, United Kingdom



‘1998’ from Al Buchanan is a rock single like no other. Its mix of texture, melody and heady vocals send you spinning into the clouds of rock without even a moment's notice. You climb strange bars, honest harmonies and jaunting lyrics all to a beat that keeps you guessing, yet always in time. The instrumental is strong. It sits with you, up close and personal. Guitars alight and fly off, returning with different tones and riffs, the bass climbs its own path and is followed by splashing percussion that touches every note, every expression on the single. The vocals are where the focus is. They are layered and seem to come from all around you, they glow and steam in the soundscape that Al Buchanan creates.


Where cinematic meets rock, there is a grey area, that no man's land of sound now belongs to Al Buchanan, as ‘1998’ creates a sound that is definitively new, and it is mesmerisingly good.
