Holden's Brewery Golden Pale Ale x Kingswood - Creepin
How do you back up an award nominated classic Australian Rock album?
With the launch of an experimental album! The somewhat ballsy effort by the Melbourne rockers, daring to be different comes an album that draws on many past musical influences and transforms it into post moden rock and roll.
There is edginess with Creepin’ which delivers a beautiful melody and harmony over the top of fuzzy guitars and a strong bassline. That bass continues on to a really funky sound on Golden while Library Books sees Kingswood return to their familiar rock sound. Part of Kingswood’s experimental journey obviously took them in a time machine back to the 60s and 70s because Belle sounds like what you would expect The Beach Boys to sound like today, Big City is pure 1960s rock bliss and Like Your Mother is one of the catchiest tracks that you will hear this year. If it doesn’t have you singing ‘shake your body good, just like your mother would’ then you obviously don’t have a musical bone in your body. That catchiness also returns on Atmosphere. Perhaps the track that best shows that Kingswood’s experimental sound works is the atmospheric Alabama White which is made heavenly by the female vocals and then builds into an absolute collision of noise. It’s a truly memorable track that you will listen to over and over. See them live if you can!
Holden's Golden Pale Ale
(See what I did there ;)
An impressive straw coloured medium bodied ale, brewed using the finest English Maris Otter malt and choicest Herefordshire hops, giving a distinctive and assertive hop character, balanced with a fruity palate and a malty finish.
