NEW EMPIRE Symmetry lyrics

"Symmetry" is the second studio album from Australian rock band New Empire, released on September 16, 2011. On March 14, 2011, the band released the song "Here in Your Eyes" as the lead single off the album. On June 29, 2011, the second single from the album, "Give Me the World", was released on YouTube and iTunes.
Most of us love a good dose of pop/rock: a catchy melody, cute vocals and foot-tapping beat. Sydney band New Empire have taken this presumption and run with it in their new LP Symmetry ? a light, bubbly injection of pop wonderfulness! The bands grip and dedication to their brand of gentle pop/rock has seen them support Good Charlotte during an Aussie tour, as well as a string of emotional Christian outfits as part of popular religious tour 'Youth Alive'. If you're looking for a fun and catchy beat, tender vocals and a pretty melody, Symmetry is definitely for you.

Opening track "Across the Oceans" begins with a softly thumping beat and a wandering, sweet riff - which coincides perfectly with lead vocalist Jeremy Fowler's high, slightly nasal and Americanised tones. The album follows essentially in this pattern for its duration, rising and falling in a predictably 'poppy' way ? verse, chorus, verse, chorus, bridge, chorus ? sporadically incorporating a fuzzy guitar solo or two. A few stand-outs include "Give Me the World", "Tightrope" and "Imagination".

Lead musicians in New Empire ? Peter Gillies (guitar), Kale Kneale (drums/vocals) and Kyle Lane (bass guitar) have a good handle on their respective instruments, using progression cleverly and building emotional crescendos...but there is a definite lack of creativity in New Empires composition which I cant help but notice.

I have no doubt that New Empire will have great successes in the future, but it will be a direct result of supplying their mostly Christian, teenaged audience with a generic brand of pop ? the boys need to start pushing the boundaries a little more if they want to build a following in other musical circles. by Alice Guld, The AU Review
