Lost Heavynn - Lost Heavynn
Lost Heavynn, of Los Angeles, are leading a renewed charge in the direction of modern melodic rock, the sort pioneered recently by Paramore and Evanescence. And they've ceratinly got the key ingredient in their frontwoman - vocal work is the cornerstone of this genre.
The first thing that hits you about this album is Heavynn's voice. It's dynamic, has a beautifully rich texture and is wonderfully articulated, not to mention powerful. She can just as easily blast her way through tracks like 'Is There An Answer' as she can croon in 'Don't Waste Your Tears', where she sounds a little like a young Erykah Badu. She is supported by her own guitar, the guitar of her producer Blake and a big beat from drummer Rundell.
They've got the passion and the skills, but I think they need to get o using them a bit more. Maybe they are relying on Heavynn's voice too much - it doesn't entirely mask the similar-sounding riffs and rhythms, and the standard chord progressions. They've got a good foundation on which to build, an a tall act to follow.
