‘Conquer’ is the first track I have had the pleasure to review from Near Death Experience. From the very start, I knew there was going to be a lot to talk about from its beautiful melodies to its robust leads.
It has a lot to offer to music fans. There is just about something for everyone, and there are more flavours than a Walker’s multipack within its short span of 2 minutes and 44 seconds. Yes, it is relatively compact for a song of this style, but it works, and they get the job done in the time they have.
So, what am I digging? Pretty much everything about the track. The foundation is solid, and even without the stellar vocal performance from Ian Whiteling, the record would still be a real force. But, the vocals add even more strength to their already solid sound.
Ian sings with conviction, and I enjoy the courage within his sublime delivery. Lyrically, we hear the band speak about a woman who conquers all and makes a mark with every step she makes. But, they also talk about the weather which hints to me that the woman in question could be mother nature? I am not entirely sure, but I would love to find out its motive.
Musically, they are in top form. It is not just Indie Rock which the band give us. There is also a funky vibe going on within the mix too, and the rhythm section could even get your granny, tapping her foot. So, fancy listening to something which is going to brighten your day and get your body pumping in no time?
