Funeral For A Friend - Kicking And Screaming

Funeral For A Friend - Kicking And Screaming

When a certain trend hits fever pitch and then starts to fizzle out, usually the main protagonists from it slowly drift out of recognition. This is not on your nelly the emo lynchpins Funeral For A Friend, with this philosophical, nostalgic and quite mature snippet from forthcoming fourth album, ‘Memory and Humanity’.

They take full advantage of Mat Davies raw, but clear vocals and use stretching 80s rock guitars and consistent atmospheric drumbeats to wretch out more heart, adding a blues rock touch. You can dissect each part of the song’s structure whilst listening to it.

This is all part of the endearing openness that Funeral For A Friend has always had.
