Pensive - Something About the Stars
Artist: Pensive (www.pensivepunk.com)
Title: Something About the Stars
Genre: Rock/Alternative, Punk
Pensive rocks hard and attacks your auditory senses swiftly on their CD/EP Something About the Stars. There is something about their music too, it is raw an unencumbered with a punk edge that screams out...listen! It is hard to ignore. This is six tracks of powerhouse music putting us all on notice that they have arrived and this is only the beginning for a band with a truckload of spitfire energy.
Even though their music has a hard edge to it, it is still danceable with plenty of melody, and if you like to slam your head against the wall on occasion you can do that too. They seem to have enough talent to sound polished or roughshod, it depends how you like it, over easy or sunny side up. Roughshod rules right now but I would expect some change on their next full-length release.
Pensive is a band with plenty of capacity for expansion and growth. This band is a diamond in the rough waiting for the right prospector to discover them and polish them into a shining finely cut gem that will sparkle so the entire world will notice. Record labels major and indie alike, are you listening?
