“Signs” by Embers – A Song Review

     “Signs” has a richness that is atypical in an era in which bands are urged to deliver quickly and without the advantage of a full-purpose recording studio. The instruments are layered, but remain impactful during times in which its merely the guitar supporting vocals (around the one-minute mark) or the guitar with an almost minimalistic synth (the 2:55 mark).
     The video of “Signs” joins the Soundcloud stream in this post, since the video provides a better appreciation of the instruments. The song is one-half of a double A-side release available for download on March 13. The other song will be “Unbound.”

     Embers is a band from Manchester, UK. The members are Steven McInerney (guitar), George Agan (vocals, guitar), Will Clutton (bass, keys), and Nathan Howard (percussion).
