Embers - Unbound

Even from its acoustic guitar-based beginning, the sense that a storm is coming is unavoidable.

The resurgence of Embers is one that’s most welcome. Making a grand, arena-sized entrance over four years ago, there’s only been one new track from the Manchester four-piece since then, until new single ‘Signs’ screeched onto the scene last month. Its follow-up ‘Unbound’ shows the band to be back in full stride, and it’s a track that doesn’t do anything by halves. Even from its acoustic guitar-based beginning, the sense that a storm is coming is unavoidable, and when the torrent of noise does arrive, it’s one that reaches Mogwai levels of piercing walls of reverb. Maybe it’s a release of frustration and tension from multiple years away that makes ‘Unbound’ so huge, but whatever the reason, it hits with the force of a hurricane.
