Post-hardcore five-piece Words Like Daggers will be releasing their debut album ‘Perfect Weather’ on March 18th through Third String Records and if all the songs are as good as ‘Speak Easy’ then we’re in for a treat.
I’m a sucker for a clever chorus structure and even more so when the vocal melody doesn’t simply utter the lyrics line by line, but toys with them and delivers them in an unexpected way. The fantastic chorus is backed up by solid instrumental work that while isn’t genre defining, breaks the song up into neat sections keeps it moving along nicely.
There’s certainly enough potential on show here to get excited for the full-length and if there’s a breadth of variation in song structures and tempos across the record, it should be a cracking debut. Check back here and on Punktastic for a review of the record in the week leading up to the 18th of March.
