Get Your Gun - The Worrying Kind
Label: Empty Tape
Format: CD


Enjoyable debut album from Danish rockers Get Your Gun who refuse to be locked down to any specific genre, hopefully not at the expense of finding an audience as passionate about the band as they clearly are themselves

Louder than War always seem to have their finger on the pulse, reaching outside of the major musical cities to find the best of what is on offer out there in the musical no man’s land. This time around they have picked up Get Your Gun from Denmark. On first listen it’s reminiscent of being a country album without sounding anything like a country album, similar in the way that Nick Cave used to with those early Bad Seeds records. Whist singer Andreas Kildedal Westmark’ vocals are not clean and streamlined by any stretch of the imagination they convey the passion and the emotive power that utterly convinces. As each song flows to next, it becomes apparent that the band refused to be pigeonholed into anything as comfortable as a genre. There is a rock grit to songs such as opener ‘Black Book’ and then elsewhere you’ll find elements of prog and a touch of psyche (check out ‘Stay for a While’ for proof) or indie rock in places, and yet ‘The Worrying Kind’ never sounds all over the place and incoherent. On a final note I have to admit that if I had a whole hour or more to listen to of this record it would be too much. There is a distinct lack of big chorus’, and there are no anthems to break up the serious rocker feel. Luckily, running at forty minutes in length is perfect; it’s great to listen to an album that actually leaves you wanting more.
