Rock-pop, described as neo-shoegazer. Female rock vocals that convey more depth when notes are held, rather than in the lyrical parts. Use of guitars effects works well, and level of distortion strikes a happy median. Standard rock percussion. Songs seem strong, but not too much variety. Most of the melody is contained within the vocals, while guitars just add harmony and atmosphere. All tracks are partially up-beat and having a driving rhythm. LoveLikeFire have a full sound, with no weak elements unto themselves. However, none of the songs are particularly interesting, but track #1 works the best, and has a cool intro. Track 4 is also worth a listen.
1) “The Contest” –starts with cool guitars. Repetitive rhythm guitar strumming. Pop female vocals with a decent amount of dynamism. Standard rock percussion. Short guitar solo at 2:00.
2) “Spoiling Afternoon” –electric guitar begins with arpeggio; moves into quick strumming; cool distortion. Driving guitars and expressive vocals, with some background whispering.
3) “Frozen” –more sedate than previous tracks. Awesome use of guitar distortion crescendo, but sadly buried. Boring percussion and rhythm. Builds cumulatively.
4) “Horizon Lines” –Poppiest track. Off-beat percussion. Electric guitar gives song a little bit of an edge. Around 1:52, instrumentation drops out for solo vocals, then more intense guitars return.
