Treble Review: ContraTelic-Irregulate EP

Brighton based three-piece Alternative Rock band ContraTelic who have been writing and playing music together for five years, formed by Joe Robinson (Vocals/Guitar), Ben Hoyle (Bass), Willis Gumbrell (Drums) despite having known each other since pre-school and having barely yet reached the age of twenty-one their bond remains strong as well as their musicality.

Having been greatly influence by the likes of Biffy Clyro, Tall Ships, Delta Sleep, Arcane Roots, Bombay Bicycle Club, TTNG, Manchester Orchestra, Tera Melos, American Football, Colour, Twin Atlantic and Reuben.

With the completion of their debut five-track EP Irregulate due to be released April 13th 2018 this band are not letting their young age hold them back having already impressed local crowds around Brighton by playing our most iconic venues such as; Concorde 2, Hope and Ruin, The Prince Albert and Green Door Store’  advancing on to winning accolades such as the Brighton Oxjam Battle of the Bands.

Irregulate having listened through the EP thoroughly is a well-thoughtout body of work with each of its five tracks a product of an exploration into the Rock genre.

Tracks include:

Eyes of the Animal

As said each track take on their own individual journey into the exploration across the Rock genre with some very riveting hooks and edgy riff layers within each of the compositions. Irregulate is wrapped in passion with each composition lovingly tailored to make their own individual statement and form their own identity. My personal favourite track Sun highlights for me the distinct ContraTelic sound within the whirlwind of influence that these guys have. Vocally quite profound and compositionally tranquil and spaced to allow for everything in the arrangement to be heard and felt. A very promising debut EP from a very promising band!

Releasing April 13th
