With their latest release, Off The Hook
has injected some adrenaline into their already polished
sound. Additionally, the band explores new musical ground on this
record by incorporating female backup vocals and the baritone saxophone
on various tracks. Off The Hook is available at CD Baby
and on iTunes
now! Remember, we always give away free CDs at shows, so come on out!
The CD kicks off with the high-energy instrumental track, Beg
, which would be ideal mood or theme music for a snowboarding, wakeboarding, motocross or other extreme sports video. Borrow
is a dynamic rock song that builds from start to finish and really showcases Joel's pipes.
The band gets funky with A Long Time Comin'
which features the baritone saxophone and three-part harmonies on the chorus. Drive
tastefully integrates analog keyboard tones with rock guitar, and has a terrific melodic hook giving it a pop/rock appeal.
the band resurrected an oldie but goodie that hadn't been recorded
previously. This tune is reminiscent of a 70's hard rock song with some
grit and growl in the low end and a nice polish on top. Tommy Huxley's
guitar really shines on Captured
, which is packed with riffs and cool textures.
The most alternative sounding track on the record is Coming Down
, which features more modern guitar and bass tones and incorporates feedback, heavy reverb and modulation.
