Just recently, Edinburgh alternative rock band Painting Rockets were brought to our attention. After spending many months in the shadows due to several issues, they are now looking to get back in the game with a new EP – Happiness In Measures.
With an atmospheric intro in the form of Aeris, our ears were fixated immediately and our curiosity grew. It all then gets going with the title track, where their talents truly come to light as they deliver some stunning singing, driving bass chords and a frenzied chorus.
After a quick break, they move onto If Hate Wasn’t A Word, where the guitars really shine through, before easing off for a smooth finish with You’ll Never Know.
Well, colour us impressed. We were expecting something good but they have definitely proven to be something much more. We sense a lot of promise from this trio.
