Sound the Alarm!

We get a respectable/occasionally overwhelming amount of post in the VK mail box, as this came to us. Mayday Radio's, The Subtle Divide came to me on a particularly harried week and went into the "to listen to" pile, but something about it nagged at me, and I pulled it out for a listen. And then listened again, and again.

With an impressive amount of spit and shine for a debut, this rapidly maturing rock-pop with underlying classical training comes through in a bold way. U2-esque riffs and surprising lyrics offer a lush rock punch. Fill 'er up on sweet and savory:
