TUNE False Flags - Juggernaut
For any band or musician to survive in this cut-throat industry, they must be able to overcome and adapt. look at any of the big players, from Ed Sheeran to Beyoncé, and you’ll see they can always create something that speaks to everyone. One such band who know the rigors of adaptation are False Flags.
Since forming from Clay Gods, they’ve had their fair share of changes. Not long after the release of their debut trio of singles at the end of 2018, they had to adapt to another change, with singer Dan Wood leaving the band. Many bands would go the easy route and find someone to fill the space who would sound the same. False Flags however, took a different approach. Faced with the task of bringing someone new in to the mix, they decided to go from a male singer to a female singer, thus changing the musical dynamic. The result: JUGGERNAUT.
From the bluesy opening, you can tell that there is something different about this track, the riff almost dancing around before JUGGERNAUT gets into gear and goes for the jugular. As soon as it does, you know that you’re in for a neck-splitting, high tempo mosh to the end. Marta’s vocals rise and fall perfectly throughout, weaving themselves around the bludgeoning guitar and thunderous bass and drums. By the time you get to the end of this thrill ride, it feels like you’ve been fighting a run-away truck, and it’s almost a relief to hear the bass rising through the feedback and taking you to the end.
If ever a track title epitomized what the song sounded like, JUGGERNAUT is that track.
