'Happening' Single Review 'Galilée'

Happening are a Post-Hardcore band from Aix-les-bains, France. The band are gearing up to release their album 'In The Middle Of The Seas' and if their latest single 'Galilée' is anything to go by its going to be a banger!

Any rock fan will know that feeling when a song comes on and that riff makes you pull that weird face... This song is one of those, or at least it had that effect on me.

'Galilée' is edgy and unhinged resonating a raw, vulnerable feel through gritty vocals. The breakdown esque riff that opens the song is energetic and holds a fist-pumping/smash your head around aura. The song can lose you slightly in the verses as it is nowhere near the same intensity in comparison to the rest of the song. Saying that, as a whole it holds a really holds the listeners attention through sporadic guitar licks and raspy shouts/screams.

'Galilée' was thoroughably enjoyable and had me banging my head about. It's a song that shows the band fit into a metalcore/rock category that favours them in terms of some of the generic bands that can come from the genre. We have an ever-growing list of bands to keep an eye on but any fans of the genre will enjoy these new age, 'balls to the wall' rockers. Keep it up Happening!
