Review Summary: From gritty, powerful rhythms to guitar harmonies and shredding solos, In Deep delivers a unique brand of eclectic hard rock.
Smoking Martha, the five piece band from Australia, are serving up top-notch hard rock with electrifying, distinctive female vocals and shredding guitar solos in their debut album, In Deep.
It begins with So Lonely, a track which immediately introduces the listener to the band’s raw and loud rock n roll sound. It’s a very energetic opening song, which serves really well the purpose of setting the tone for the rest of the album.
It is followed by Say You’re Mine, one of the stand-out numbers, which was released as a single prior to the album’s release. The Aussie rockers’ have been receiving rave reviews for their live performances and it will be hard not to be blown away by a song like Say You’re Mine at one of their live shows.
Tasha D’s voice is an instrument that’s irresistibly powerful, whether she’s belting out a refrain or singing with emotion in the slower and somber Baby Let Me Go.
The vocals are complemented at every turn by ropy bass lines, perfectly-placed percussion, and passionate, captivating guitar riffs.
Songs such as Ebb of The Tide and Find A Way are steadily built and escalate at some point with pleasingly heavy riffs and fast drum patterns. Since the release of their self titled EP in 2014 Smoking Martha haven’t put a foot wrong and have managed in the following years to craft identity and a unique sound.
From gritty, powerful rhythms to guitar harmonies and shredding solos, In Deep delivers a unique brand of eclectic hard rock.
