Armchair Committee - Domovoi by Armchair Committee

Matt Langham

The heavier end of the rock spectrum isn't really my thing, but I still found this enjoyable. I think it could be a shade more distinctive in terms of the arrangement and songwriting, but there's certainly a nice snarling foundation to work from. Maybe focusing a little more on the dynamic range might help.

"Armchair Committee" is a suave and well-accomplished blues-rocker that manages to evade the faults of many genre imitators; this track packs enough vocal ferocity, inventive guitar lines, and all-out intensity to stand apart from the hordes of other groups inspired by the likes of Jack White and The Black Keys. The punchy distorted guitars and vocals ride heavy throughout, with the transition to the chorus being signaled nicely by throttling percussion. I'm also fond the melodic transition around 02:30; it provides a nice sense of variation, and preps listeners for the primary hook's re-entry and onslaught-like conclusion. I'll be posting it on Obscure Sound in the near future. Reach out to me at mike@obscuresound.com if interested in success stories/rates regarding my digital PR servicing. Thanks for sending this -Mike

Ordinarily this wouldn't be my kind of thing but I'm enjoying the rawness and bluesy undertones. It's very well structured, in a way that I'm sure would go over huge in a live setting, and builds and rocks perfectly.

A quote for your PR machine? How about, "Armchair Committee will make your head bang, your feet jump and your ears bleed, and you'll love them for it".

Domovoi does a great job at throwing the listener off with the spooky intro before the mighty riff smacks them in the face. From there on it's a bit of a rollercoaster ride of a track building momentum with every hard hitting riff and culminating in a soaring chorus line that begs you to shake your head. 

There's definitely a menacing quality to the arrangements that keeps you on your toes all the time. The change of pace at the 2:30 mark in particular catches you off guard before the final crescendo delivers the final knock out. 

Good job all round and the video plays it's part too.

I would be happy to feature this on the blog in the next few weeks, can you send me a band image and/or single cover image plus any information about the album the single will be taken from. 

Best of luck
