Life is like an Unearthed Review.
Someone who really isn’t qualified to make judgments on you ends up being a jerk to you.
That unqualified jerk is me, and the poor undeserving punter whom I will be mean to is Renegade Peacock.
Here’s what they have to say about themselves:
They didn’t fill their BIO in, but seeing as the user reviews appear to be written by the band’s girlfriends (or possibly the band while wearing wigs) let’s just use some of the quotes from there as a bio.
raddest song ever
Awesome. AIC if they were a new band now
Awesome driving song! Harmonies in the chorus take this track to a whole other level. Looking forward to seeing you guys live again soon!
This song blows my mind. Amazing!
Best!! BEST!! Love this song, love this band, LOOOOVE The Peacock!
Really love the chorus and the explosive ending
These guys are fantastic! Every song makes me move!
Here’s what I have to say about Renegade Peacock:
This is grungy rock created out of a manual and it is exactly as raw and edgy as that sentence makes it sound. There is nothing wrong with it, but there is nothing right either. The singer can sing, the instrumentalists can play, and the music is fine. The songs make sense, the lyrics do their job, and the world keeps turning. They’ve ticked all the boxes. They are a band, they are playing rock, the mic is plugged in. If that’s all you need, congratulations! You can stop reading this review here, I’ve found you another band to listen to.
But it sounds like a million bands that can come before.
It sounds like something very safe pretending it’s dangerous.
They’ve put three tracks up and each sounds more generic than the one that comes after it, and the one that comes before it. I know that doesn’t make sense but somehow it’s still true.
It’s amazing. It doesn’t matter what order you actually play the songs in either. No matter how you listen to it, you’ll swear that the song you’re currently listening to is the safest most generic rock song you’ve ever heard, only to swear that again when the next track plays.
“This can’t be right!” You’ll say, “One of these songs must be the most generic!” and you’ll dive back into your research.
Eventually you’ll realise the trick. All three of the available songs are in fact the single same song and you’ve wasted far too much of your afternoon listening to it.
