What better way to kick off a rock magazine from Newfoundland than reviewing one of the hottest rock bands currently coming out of Newfoundland?
This month I listened to Fairgale's first album "Own The Light". I may be a tad bias because I know a couple of the guys from the band, but I can feel completely clean and happy saying that their first album is a great album. I'll be honest, the first time I listened to the album I was somewhat on the fence (because of personal preference) between do I like this because I know the band, or do I like it because it's actually good?
Then I found myself singing their songs on my own time and couldn't wait to play them again. I would play them as soon as I got home and around my girlfriend and friends. Everyone were quickly asking questions about the band and downloading their album. It's no surprise they cracked the top 20 on the world wide alternative rock iTunes Charts.
Fairgale shares the main vocals between Stephen Green & Andrew Rogers, which helps keep each song that much more unique & original. They're a bit more on the softer rock side and they're great to throw on when having company over or while out for a drive.
