REVIEW: Keroscene – Our Time (Single ) by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy
London psychedelic rock act Keroscene are certainly ones to watch, being so early into their career they have already gained the support and attention from NME, Q magazine and more with their unique sound. Impressively they are yet to even release an EP or album, but have grown in popularity solely through their four singles, ‘Regret’, ‘Just Like Zero’, ‘I Can’t Do A Thing’ and ‘Like The First Time’.
Now they are back to create some more noise with their latest single, ‘Our Time’ which was recorded with Matt Peel, (Pulled Apart By Horses, Eagulls) which may be their best yet, again highlighting their ever expanding genre defining sound. The song itself is a bouncy vibrant track, aided by the guitar effects and synth sounds with complimentary resonant vocals, all wrapped in a fuzzy ambience giving it an upbeat vibe that is irresistible to the ear!
The song was written during the band’s days at their ‘Unit 4’ warehouse in West London, and again as the band have displayed before in previous tracks there is a deep meaning behind the lyrics, this time it focuses on the bands time there and how they developed: “Lyrically the song is inspired by everything currently happening in the world around us, both on a societal level with rapid changes in technology and politics and on a personal level. This apparent lack of tangibility of anything genuinely real in our digital world can sometimes make us feel bored and at odds with a sense of cultural stagnation”.
Keroscene have already shown through their singles that they are not afraid to experiment and explore their musical depth, it will be exciting to see what they do next!
