Free From Gravity – Step Into The Sunlight
Free From Gravity delivers a soothing, inspirational album with “Step Into The Sunlight”. Drawing from classic rock acts like Pink Floyd and U2, Free From Gravity offers a fresh take on that timeless approach. Songs soar into the sky belying a dreamy quality and hopeful demeanor that permeates every piece. Lyrics have a poetic quality to them while they allow for a great degree of playfulness. Instrumentally rich, the many elements work in unison to create a fantastic, elegant work. Songs build up with an incredible grace, courtesy of the driving rhythms and powerful riffs that dominate the tracks.
On “Finally Realised” Free From Gravity sets the tone for the album, as they describe geography and past lives with such delicacy. Infinitely catchy “Behind Those Lies” goes for a jangly pop quality, almost referencing twee pop at times. Things are stripped to the essentials on the intimate nature of “The Long Road”. Continuing down this spacious path “Hold On” offers a surreal take on pop music, letting the guitar drift off with such ease. Easily the highlight comes from the long-lost 80s pop hit of “I Just Don’t Know”. Representing a pure rush “Dance With Me” moves by in a glorious blur. Spikey guitars dominate “Saints and Sinners”. Ending the album on an ambitious note the sprawling “Don’t Say Goodbye” opts for a nostalgic tinge.
With “Step Into The Sunlight” Free From Gravity sculpts a vivid portrait of lives lived most fully, displaying an uncanny storytelling ability.
