Where: Loaded Soul Records
Illumination is the new single to come from Manchester four piece The Watchmakers. These guys have already received a heap of support from tons of media outlets such as BBC 6Music and XFM, and having been compared to the likes of The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Primal Scream and The Verve, they could have quite a big debut year.
The Watchmakers go all out to bring guitars, bass and drums to the eardrums in immediate fashion as Illumination hits the listener right in the face with walls of riffs, pounding basslines and crashing drums to deliver one hell of a first impression. The track is littered with hooks, and an infectious lead melody that seeps in and out of the music but always remains inside the brain.
Illumination is a great track and certainly gives us a few reasons why The Watchmakers are being given tons of praise and support from all over the place.
