"Review of 'Don't Know'"

The Reverence – Don’t Know

Formed in late 2008, it’s hard to believe that this lot haven’t been together for years. These boys know exactly what sound they want to achieve and they’re right on track to doing just that. Atmospheric pop-rock songs come easy to them and Don’t Know proves it.

Don’t Know is a well polished slice of pop rock, influenced by the likes of Interpol and Editors. A catchy guitar riff and thumping drum beats help pave the way for The Reverence to follow in the footsteps of Editors and the like in achieving pop-rock status.

"Review of 'A Reflection' and 'In A Place'"

Brighton has a long history of pumping out bands with perfectly timed sounds and The Reverence are right on cue with their fashionable indie sound.

'A Reflection' combines Coventry, Sheffield and Surrey sounds in this modern-Brit-rock track. Duffield's vocal is the shining light leading the way in this song, with solid performances all round.

There's a quality guitar intro for 'In A Place', which is a slower song. It's a solid enough effort, although the bass could afford to be a lot more bassy than it is here.

The only problem with arriving bang-on-trend is that you almost always join the tail end of a musical movement. Having said that, The Reverence know how to put a song together and I have no doubt that they will get better and better as their sound matures.

With 'A Reflection', this band really demonstrates a lot of promise. -

The Reverence is a Brighton-based rock band that formed in September 2008. They have recorded an EP and an album, made a music video, played several live shows to an already dedicated fan base across the South East (including support for James McCartney) and recently had some radio play which has invoked positive responses from DJs and listeners. They released debut single My Town on 15th February 2010, for which they collaborated with short-film director, Liam Creighton, to make a music video to accompany it. The video is available to view on and the song is in all good mp3 download stores. Debut mini-album Monument was released on 29th March 2010 and can be purchased from

The influences in the band range from post-punk (Joy Division, Queens Of The Stone Age) to anthemic indie (Interpol, Editors) to epic Brit-rock (Radiohead, Elbow) to alternative/modern Americana (REM, The National). When listening to their music you can also hear touches of 80s electronica, 21st century indie-dance and out-and-out punk-rock. But The Reverence don’t set out to reproduce anyone else’s music; their music is entirely their own and transcends genres. They prefer the idea of setting trends, not copying them.

The members of The Reverence write about the dark things in life that affect everyone – fears, frustration, worry, anger, loneliness and uncertainty. But they write to make things better, not to depress. Their songs are filled with hope and are brightened by a light at the end of the tunnel. Their energetic live shows aim to bring people together, excite them, help them forget their worries and enjoy themselves. They are excited about the music they write and play and at the potential they have to be a truly great band.
