PlayBack: The Ransom Collective – Settled

04/11/16 11:59:41 AM

From small gigs to the big-time festivals, The Ransom Collective has rocked them all. This indie-folk band has been wooing aficionados, fellow musicians, and even critcs. Perhaps that speaks for a lot of reasons such as on why they made it on the Wanderland Fest 2014; why they almost won that year's edition of Deezer Young Guns (placing just next to Hungary's Middlemist Red); and why they were part of Spotify's Spotlight Artists for 2016.

Their five-tracked self-titled EP was their living testatment on making music—a fusion of indie-folk with chilling acoustics, vocal arrangements, and classical pop mixtures layering somewhere in between. Truly an artistic kind of contemporary music with sense of elitism sans pretensions.

So that being said, another records—an upcoming album, will be definitely at works; and their latest release Settled proved they could do more than their previous released. The five minuter seems to tell about moving forward into another "new" day and keep exploring instead of settling for anything lesser than the promises of today and tomorrow.

Apart from Images, Settled seemed a proof of TRC going upbeat track by track. Clearly, the vibes for this one toppled what both Fools and Run had been before. Not swaying away from the thundering and thumping beat of the drum.
Clearly, a promise for the upcoming new album by this band. Heard that it will be a full-length one. So it's safe to say that we should expect another bunch of ear-candy auditory goodies coming from them soon!
