White Belt Yellow Tag – Methods

NAME: White Belt Yellow Tag
ALBUM: Methods
YEAR: 2010 (April 5th)
LABEL: Distiller Records
RATING: 3/5

FIVE WORD REVIEW: An Impression Of Deja-Vu

LOCATION: Newcastle, UK

LINE UP: Justin Lockey (vocals, guitars) / Craig Pilbin (vocals,samples) / Tom Bellamy (drums)

WHAT’S THE STORY?: This three-piece came together at the start of 2009 when Lockey (ex-Yourcodenameis:Milo) and Pilbin met in a studio in Newcastle. After being joined by Tom Bellamy (ex-The Cooper Temple Clause), the band released 2009’s three EPs, well-received by radio & press, and did an extensive tour. They gathered in South Yorkshire in the summer of 2009 to record ‘Methods’, and just finished a UK tour.

SOUNDS LIKE: ‘Methods’ is an uneven yet correct album. Starting with the powerful ‘Remains’, and followed by two of the best band compositions ‘Tell Your Friends (It All Worked Out)’ and ‘You’re not Invicible’, the first half of the LP is quite promising. But by the time you reach the album single ‘Always & Echoes’ , you begin to tire of hearing similar instrumental and vocals parts. For the second half of the album, you might wonder if your player is stuck on repeat. ‘Methods’ is an easy-to-listen though sometimes dull album, which will (as not revolutionizing rock) well accompany 40 minutes of your time digesting Easter chocolates.

YOU’LL LIKE THIS IF YOU LIKE: Sounds Like Guns, Screaming Lights, My Bloody Valentine, Coldplay (eventually)
