Doon Flows Through Spatial Planes on The Rebirth

The band Doon is one of the many bands trying to make a name for themselves in a crowded alternative rock world, and they do the genre justice quite well. From the opening notes of “The Rebirth” you get pulled into a creation of sonic sound that will definitely find a home for many people. I immediately thought of the Trustkill Records groups Openhand and Hopesfall without the heavy handed screaming.

The vocals, the guitar work, and the percussion all work together here. It’s a sound that you may be familiar with amongst a lot of the independent rock bands coming out of Victory Records, from Taking Back Sunday to Thursday (I know they’ve moved to bigger labels), and it’s done in a new way. While there are moments where you swear they are a different band, they turn over and show you a much more carefully crafted approach.

“The Rebirth” produces a special type of musical endeavor. The EP brings together melody, playful guitars, and strong rock tunes amidst vocals that fit the mood so nicely, that you’ll definitely hear about these guys in the near future. It’s a solid rock release that is not too far away from 30 Seconds to Mars. Even though this is an EP is feels so much bigger, as the sounds really push through emotional connections that you often miss out on with shorter recordings.

At the end of the day, you can make your own mind up on this record, but I think it’s a fine example of talent and presents an incredible layered rock soundtrack to anything you’re doing. I for one could already see myself using it for a skate video part, as it flows so well with some slo-mo footage. That’s just me, though.

If you want to listen to this record you can do so through soundcloud here, and you can buy the record on itunes here. Make sure to check out their music video below.
