Perhaps I was a bit too harsh in my review of Exit Calm’s second album The Future Isn’t What It Used To Be. Latest single Promise (or THE Promise in my iTunes) is a chilled, yet epic slice of alternative rock.
As befits a slightly trippy feel, the video also has a slight psychedelic touch to it. Lyrically, it’s got one of the strongest ear-worm refrains I’veheard in a while. Vocalist Nicky Smith proclaims more than once that he is the voice between your ears.
With more than one play from me today already, he has the prophetic touch all great front men possess.
