Afghan Whigs- Do to the Beast
Apr 10, 2014
Revolver gives a sampling of the kind of acoustic folk that earned it a French Grammy nomination with its new EP, Parallel Lives. Despite all three of the band’s members being born in France, Revolver shows clear roots in British and American classic rock-folk groups and clear possession of the English language. One wouldn’t be far off calling them the French Fleet Foxes.
“Losing You” stands out for its fantastic harmonies and storytelling that take you to another place for two minutes and 41 seconds. The EP’s opener and title track trails only “Losing You” in greatness, featuring only vocalist Ambriose Willaume apart from the harmonious refrain to emphasize the song’s great lyrics.
With just four songs, Parallel Lives, leaves the listener longing for more. The short closing track, "Balulalow" (1:16) feels like a tease of something greater about to come from Revolver.
