Review: The Dying Seconds – GlimmerersTweet
The Dying Seconds are a six-piece band from Dublin and they have recently released their debut album Glimmers; a brooding and delicate ten track offering.
This album was evidently not designed to blow its listeners away, but rather comfort and relax and perhaps even hypnotise with its soft lullaby-like melodies and gossamer vocals. Case in point is Kid Logic, a beautiful song with a mystical quality about it, it is the perfect example of what to expect from this band; alluring harmonies, touching lyrics and pleasant vocals. Other remarkable tracks on this wonderful album include Scars an easy-to-listen-to song which resembles Coldplay but without the over production and the practically silent All in the dark. Another notable aspect of the album is that it lacks any evidence that the band are trying hard to fit into any particular genre- a plus because nobody likes a try-hard. It is a soft-touch collection of gently put together tunes topped off with slight musicianship and harmonised vocals.
It is by no means expected to stun the charts, but it is a treasure in a pile of obvious successes, an album as fragile as porcelain.
The album can be listen to on the band’s website.
