Pranks - Long Knives
Info: Their third single release since signing to Minor Fall Records, 'Long Knives' is a departure from the sound of previous releases. The track is a full on rock anthem, showcasing the bands broad creative range as well as their penchant for writing ear catching melodies and grooves.
'Long Knives' certainly is a bit of a departure for Dublin duo Pranks (Micheal Sheil (Guitar & Vocals) and Gearoid Connaughton (Drums)), with a searing guitar riff that nods it's head a little to Gary Moore, the latest single is a passionate and rousing affair. Drifting from lo-fi indie-rock, to bursts of full on energetic rock, the vocal harmonies push the chorus to high zesty plains. Whilst the power is there, it is true that Pranks come across more restrained in other ways than on their previous two singles, 'Flares' and 'El Capitan', which were more noise-filled outings. Three out of three great singles and one more to come perhaps from their soon to be released EP. A must see live act, Pranks are doing everything right at the moment, and 'Long Knives' is my own personal favourite of the three singles to date.
