The Dying Seconds – Panacea

The Dying Seconds

The new ep from The Dying Seconds ‘Panacea’ is a lovingly crafted little auditory journey. Opening with the acoustically plucked guitar and urgent but restrained vocals about the breakdown of a relationship and the struggle against its end. The mix of vocal style’s with the backing vocals coming in much more like a calm echo to the urgent lead creating a fantastic contrast. Its reminiscent of some Alt J tracks but with more of an acoustic feel and the instrumentation of Bon Iver. The lead singer reminds me in parts of Tom Smith (editors) or Paul Banks (Interpol) a slight haunting quality to his baritone voice.

A fantastic ep with rich instrumentation and considered lyrics delivered with honesty and feeling throughout.

The Dying Seconds: 10-4

What a perfect video for this song it just captures the sentiment perfectly. Who hasn’t walked around with a cloud over them listening to a song in the same way. Real nice La Blogothèque style too it as well with the live vocals.
