Review | Whitemoor – Pause and Effect

Indie band, WhiteMoor have recently released their newest album Pause and Effect on the 25th July. The album, which is on independent record label, Sound-Hub Records, is a great combination of catchy and guitar heavy sounds.

Their previous two albums had a different  pop like vibe, but now they are focused on a much more rock feel. They have been noted by BBC Introducing for their ‘creative use of guitar’ and this is the most prominent sound on the album.

The tunes on Pause and Effect are a great listen, especially if you are searching for something loud but still melodic. The album has many epic sections, with the first song, Hollywood, beginning with an almost filmic soundtrack quality. All the tunes have a lot of space for instrumental section, and the vocals, while intense in volume, often take a back seat to the central guitar riffs. Giving it a unique sound in this genre.

The band is made up of Barrington Mole, guitar and vocals, Luke Inglis on bass, Tom Scribbins on drums, Benny Ryan on vocals and Louise Tomlinson, who joined the band in 2012, on keyboard. While the format of the band is quite traditional, the songs don’t follow a strict indie formula. The whole album feels like a brilliant experience in mixing up what you would usually think of as rock or indie songs. Tunes such as, A Cage For The Animals, combines different elements of the genres such as heavy, quick drum beats, with long smooth lines of vocals. This is also followed through in the video they have released for the record , with patterned and noisy backgrounds contrasting with the foreground in block colours.

WhiteMoor was put together in 2010 by Barrington Mole, but has only been in it’s current format for three years. However the bands sound pulls together well, giving them the sound of a group that have been together for much longer.

Pause and Effect is a great listen for anyone partial to a bit of indie with a difference.
