Dramatic sextet Gazpacho bring a lot of thought and ideas to their brand of rock. Their new single and forthcoming album ‘Fireworker’ is a prime example of what they get up. The rockers spend a lot of time working towards big musical payoffs. That means a melodic chorus that gets bolder each visit or a sampled choir, violin or organ backing up short explosive guitar moments for a bridge. It’s all held together with Jan-Henik’s pained vocals. He sounds like at any moment who wants to scream but he never does – he sounds so weighed down by the world. It is a beautiful counter-balance to superb patchwork rock that is built around him.
Gazpacho released ‘Fireworker’ earlier this year but recently released a video for their track. It explores various historic face masks and how they give the wearer a new feeling of power – a fire in their belly. The album itself goes on to explore various aspects of the human condition which I’ll be fascinated to dive into when I pick up the album later this year. Enjoy the music video below. ‘Fireworker’ is out now.
