Amp up to listen to The Tracys last and latest album, “Welcome To The Land of Nothing.”
The album kicks off with “Candy From a Baby,” a mid-tempo track that pulls the music together with hooks and catchphrases dancing in the derisive melody. The back-up vocals provide more space and immersive appeal to the low and thick timbre of the up-front vocals.
The band’s impressive musicianship shines through, showcasing their tight instrumentation and dynamic transitions. As the album progresses, the contextual intensity ramps up with songs like “A Soviet Mistake.” The Tracys take a comical and tongue-in-cheek approach to a serious topic.
The standout track, “Welcome to the Land of Nothing,” serves as the album’s centerpiece. This anthem captures the essence of The Tracys’ defiant spirit, combining infectious melodies with driving rhythms to create an immersive room of rock-n-roll sprawled thick and warm.
Closing the album is “Dance Machine,” a ripping finale that leaves you wanting more. The Tracys showcase their ability to deliver high-energy punk rock with relentless guitars taking the front stage and pounding drums always thrumming in the back. The vocals are more grounded and serious. It’s a masterful conclusion to an album that starts by cracking a smile on your face and ends with a thought or two provoked in your mind.
Remember to crank up loud to the songs with gusto if you decide to give “Welcome To The Land Of Nothing” by The Tracys a shot on Spotify.
