Hailing from Shepparton, three piece Past Present has announced first single ‘Harlequins‘ of their upcoming second album; if you haven’t heard it, you have to go check it out as soon as possible! Whilst sitting down and having a listen, this reviewer got the initial impression of a slightly macabre feel; almost like one would expect to hear during the opening to a circus sideshow that wasn’t for the faint of heart.
As vocalist and guitarist Bailey Slade makes his presence felt, you can hear the changes that he has gone through between albums. The passion and raw energy that is being expressed really got this reviewer excited; the contrast between Slade’s soft and velvet smooth voice when compared to the mood being created by the instruments.
At this stage there hasn’t been any word on the release date of Past Present’s second album, but if you’re a fan of bands like Opeth, Karnivool or Caligula’s Horse make sure you click the links below and have a listen; this reviewer is most definitely going to be keeping an eye out for news about another single or the release date!
