Indelible Stain by Devine Lie: Review
If you had a specific genre that sparked your first journey into music, what would it be? For me, it’d be alternative rock, and a bit of indie too. Luckily, the remarkable aura of alternative rockers Devine Lie and their track “Indelible Stain” satisfied my urge for fresh new music.
An acoustic melody at the forefront, a singer at the mic, altogether creating a delightful dark composition. As soon as I heard “Indelible Stain”, an essence of passion loomed over the horizon. There’s something intriguing about the band’s sound. Their vibe pertains to Audioslave’s more emotional takes. However, due to Devine Lie’s more acoustic passages, there’s a dash of country thrown in there. This combination gave rise to Indelible Stain’s deep and moody atmosphere. Even though Devine Lie started with light guitar chords, the chorus exploded into a distorted guitar piece which was jaw-dropping. Understanding Devine Lie’s musical hypothesis was indeed charming. Everyone’s got an ethos behind their tunes am I right? Evidently, their philosophy gathers around societal aspects, self-reflection, and the facet of dreams to summarize. Personally from a melodic and songwriting point of view, the band’s nature appears to be quite sophisticated.
Now, about the singer’s tone and approach. All in all, I enjoyed his clean technique, and there were a few breathy takes throughout the chorus. ‘Cause of that, the entirety of the energetic segments seemed more fruitful, more alive if you will.
