Nothing 2 Declare - "Frozen Child"
(White River Records 2001, N2DWWROO3)
From Aural Innovations #20 (July 2002)
This is the debut recording by this young UK quartet. The 6 track CD was mastered by Tim of Stone Premonitions. The music is pretty basic indie guitar rock. The title track opens the CD and has a pretty lo-fi rock sound with some fuzzed out 60's style guitar soloing. Not a bad song, but not one you will remember for long either. "From The Inside" and "Beneath The Sun" are rock ballads but again nothing very memorable or unique. "Rogue" is the heaviest thing on the CDEP and has a pretty raw sound. "Who Cares" ends the CD and is much like the opening track. Not a bad debut but this band needs some time to develop.
