Breathe – Bonus Track
Peace has been shattered by these voices from musicians who see the world differently. The Warning is a band on the warpath, spearheading an album with so much lyrical and musical energy.
Their sound has a mix of well-tuned guitar parts which are electrifying and atmospheric, and on their album Error, the trio become titans of their art.
Throughout the record, the act up their game at every opportunity, balancing instrumental coherence and whimsical wordplay.
The Warning show the kind of maturity beyond their years with Error. The music has this certain panache, in a volatile but infectious way. And this trio of sisters know how to build perfect songs, tracks that do not shy away from telling stories.
These fables aren’t sugar-coated in any way, and they can’t be dismissed easily. That’s what you want from an act, stories you can relate to and those you can wrap around your mind.
Musically, The Warning is advanced, particularly in the rhythm section. They can play their instruments with fierce pace and they can write songs that are informative and unnerving in a way that doesn’t spook the listener. To be honest, this band from Mexico are the full package.
There are 14 songs here. ‘Choke’ showcases angelic vocals and an acoustic sound until the tension rises with electrifying results – it’s unbelievably good.
‘Evolve’ has the metal effect, and it confirms the taste for destruction. The chorus is fast and volatile; explosive in its execution.
‘Z’ has a brilliant bass-line and the vocals emerge frantically, pushing the limitations. Happiness seems to be dying. ‘Revenant’ opens with an acoustic sound and the calmness is refreshing. The vocal work breathes new life into this.
The Warning is a band managing to create sonic influences. Their album, Error, challenges the status quo and it shows there is no fear.
Verdict - 9/10
