With a gritty flair and some classically melody-driven songwriting, The Memoirs write a new page into the rock book of relationship analysis. Some deep guitar tones, a driving beat, and a steady 8th-note pulse lay down the foundation for their unique flavor of post-punk truth-telling referencing the sounds of Jonathan Fire*Eater.
It's an impassioned baritone vocal that deftly navigates the torn-heart landscape of a young soul making sense of life itself. An incisive eye for getting to the point, as well as some tube-drenched power chords, help The Memoirs to build a modern sound and story that is all their own.
The Memoirs are a five-piece Indie Rock band from Nottingham. This song is currently featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
