Track Review: Big Old Nowhere // Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells
Reputed for their energetic, engaging and astounding melodies, rock trio Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells are one of those bands you immediately place on your personal playlist. Already turning heads across the globe, Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells has been featured on notable blogs like Out Now Magazine, Music News, Voice Mag, Essentially Pop and various radio stations. Moreover, they have supported the iconic Scouting For Girls on their UK tour. The latest addition to their discography is the single ‘Big Old Nowhere’.
Described by Out Now Magazine as a “powerful single”, ‘Big Old Nowhere’ is the second single off Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells’ upcoming sophomore album. With an upbeat, high-paced tempo, the lads blend elements of pop-rock and indie-rock in their new song. The thing is, while there is a modern-day rock sound in ‘Big Old Nowhere’, it appears to be a tribute to 90s rock. A nostalgic flair exists in the pounding melody really dragging me back to the days of U2, Stone Temple Pilots and Goo Goo Dolls; yet I cannot compare Aliens Don’t Ring Doorbells to any of these bands as their sound is completely distinctive.
Bold and powerful, the trio elegantly brings together pounding drums, dynamic guitars and rich vocals in this melodic arrangement. Interestingly enough, while the melody is forceful knocking you off your feet, the vocals are warm and rich embracing you in a comfortable sonic hug. Toe-tapping, soul-soaring and breath-taking, ‘Big Old Nowhere’ is not a song easily forgotten. My one complaint is that the song ended too soon and with such abruptness.
