Band Rock Punk





Unamused Dave are a dynamic rock music drive hailing out of Central Illinois, stateside!
These impressive rockers catapult exceptionally with ‘in your face’ rock n’ roll music attitude. I really liked the genre combinations of alternative rock, rock n’ roll, indie-rock and some pop-punk charm, gigantic music intensities here!
I really feel that the prospects look bright for these rockers, certainly feel they’ve got a good chance for impressing music appreciators globally with their energetic, intensified rock music definiton!

"Unamused Dave - Apple Drive"

Illinois natives Unamused Dave have an energetic feel to their music which at times borders on emo, were it not for the more restrained vocals. Apple Drive, their latest release, has an uncanny similarity to bands such as Brand New of the Dejà Entendu era. The opening track, "Anything" has a throbbing melody and some powerful drumming which underpins a tight arrangement where each member of the band plays his part with some craft.
Strange then that the track segues immediately into a brief instrumental which owes more to metal than anything else and closes out with a fifteen second long sustain. If the intention behind this is to throw the listener off balance, the intent succeeds. You are left wondering where the band is going next and the heavily echoed guitar intro the next track, "Marvin, What Do You Make of All This" promises yet another change of musical direction. But you are not in for a surprise this time to the same extent. The song soon settles down into another melodic, crisp piece of indie rock dominated by some clever guitar work which alternates loud and quiet to good effect. The drumming is another highlight of this particular track.
"Self-Proclaimed Deity" follows in pretty much the same vein but is never so similar as to give the impression that the band, after a varied start to the EP, have actually only a single string to their bow. There is a stop-start structure to the track with a disruptive middle with a time change which is enough to throw you off the scent of predictability. These two tracks, and the one following, "Cardinal", are of the right length. Not too short to be appreciate: never too long to outstay its welcome. - Charles Martel
