Bangkok-based band The Whitest Crow (formerly known as the Whitest Crow and Gangs) have done it again in their latest single, ‘Be With You’.
Since signing on to Thai label Rat Records, The Whitest Crow have been refocusing their energies in an effort to start afresh. Early fans of their sound however have little to worry about as the band have not abandoned their love for producing fiery rock music.
Although packaged as a modern rock track, ‘Be With You’ is also evidence that the band have hung on to their signature, psychedelic touch. While an understated bassline carries the verse forward, gruffly strummed guitar chords (interestingly enough) highlight the spontaneous nature of lead singer, Tritle’s heavily accented vocals. Admittingly, the pauses that come after every chorus do come across as a tad indulgent, but they carry out the meaningful task of transporting the listener into yet another bold, time-warping chapter.
