Near Death Experience (NDX) hit 2022 running with the release of new single ‘Found’ – a driving, rousing anthem of lost lives saved by the power of love, infused with a sumptuous brooding guitar riff and featuring a chorus catchier than Omicron.
‘Found’ opens with a soft rising guitar growl before the riff kicks in and the drums explode into a driving groove that comes to a sudden halt before the chorus immediately hooks the listener in. Further along the journey, a beautifully dark, dubby verse hints at the back story building to crescendo towards the chorus – and we’re off again!
Quite what the world will make of NDX’s latest curveball is anyone’s guess. What’s certain is the band’s song craft and ability to surprise and delight in equal measures. Guitarist Bill ‘The Professor’ Marten has created a killer riff to add to his beguiling guitar line collection, while singer Ian ‘Lightning’ Whiteling distills melody and emotion as he emphasises loss and love in his trademark fusion of rock and soul vocals.
As for the NDX rhythm section, bass man Amar ‘Groovemeister’ Grover lifts the chorus with his melodious lines, while taking the verse to an altogether dubbier place, strongly supported by drum maestro Isidoro ‘Rock’n’Roll’ Roltan with his gripping rhythms and fills. Not even three shots of Pfizer will render you immune!
