But don't watch it that way, because there are some terrific things happening in this song you need to hear. The first two minutes build tension with chiming guitars and slow vocals, reminiscent of some of the Scottish bands on the Fat Cat label, but at about 2.30, instead of the crashing wall of sound you might expect, the band shift to a really nice prog-riff, like something Robert Fripp might have done on "Larks Tongues in Aspic, Pt. 23". Oh yeah, and then the wall of sound with the beautiful chorus, followed by a bigger wall of sound pounding out the last 30 seconds. Exhilarating.
If you'd like to hear more, you'll have to wait -- but not long. Our Lost Infantry's debut album, The New Art History, will be released by Deep Elm in the US on 14 November. Start saving now.
