"Earcandy "Raw Candy""

EARCANDY 'Raw Candy' (INDEPENDENT)


Formed a year ago, Oklahoma's EARCANDY has already released two albums. Both albums are now available as one CD titled 'Raw candy' that is available through mp3.com. There are 11 songs on the CD and musically there is a split between melodic rocksongs and groovy southern rocksongs. Of course I prefer the melodic rock typed tunes and therefore my favourite songs are "White bird", "Demon me" and "The rage in a rebels eyes". The first two are classy 80s cheerful hookladen American melodic rockers a la SLYBOYZ, VON GROOVE…

"The rage in a rebels eyes" is a great midtempo AOR/Melodic Rocker, sounding like a cross between VELOCITY and 38 SPECIAL. But apart from these 3 songs, the rest is totally different and moves sometimes in pure Southern Rock territory. Songs like "Rock&roll revival", "Light of day", "Baby's got rhythm" and "Livin that way" are weak songs, very groovy and Southern Rock based. Some of the other songs such as "Pay to play", "Monday morning" (uptempo hard rock a la CINDERELLA), "Rain" and "That's cool!" (POISON meets ZZ TOP) are ok, but nothing that special. Hopefully the band throws in more melodic rockers (like the first 3 mentioned songs), then they would be much more interesting.

Nevertheless, a band worth checking out, maybe the songs aren't always convincing, the lead singer has a very good voice, something which is very important for many melodic rockfans. Check out their site at: http://www.mp3.com/thebandearcandy and e-mail them at: thebandearcandy@hotmail.com
