The Hourly Radio has a sound that draws many references and yet remains completely original and unique.
Singer Aaron Closson has a great voice. In Means To An End, it sounds as if he's channeling Geddy Lee of Rush. During First Love Is Forever, the tension in the composition is fantastic and as the song progresses you get a aural release that for my money, mirrors My Bloody Valentine. I'd definitely recommend this if you're a fan of Placebo... or in a mood to brood. I always like brooding, so you can count me in as a fan. Fitting, I feel, for a the end of the week.
