The Dangerous Summer - Sins

Single review by

'Sins' is a record of controlled melodic intent housed in a powerful modern rock song. It takes some huge touchstones of the modern rock pantheon, Linkin Park, Jimmy Eat World, Biffy, with dashes of Twin Atlantic but delivers it with such an intensity and passion that The Dangerous Summer stand tall in this illustrious company.

A wall of guitars and rich yet plaintive vocals telling of being apart from the one you love. The song then builds, and The Dangerous Summer show sheer class in the restraint and maturity, in holding back the song, allowing the pressure and tension to masterfully build before it simply unleashes into a grand, epic track. If the forthcoming album is anywhere near this, then it will be stunning.
