Sound Of Guns - Architects

Something about this just sounds big. Oversized for little clubs and rock venues, 'Architects' sounds more suited to spatial arenas and the radio airwaves which whizz around our nation. Liverpool's Sound Of Guns seem like they're on to something pretty big, and thankfully for all its style and sheen, it still seems to have substance too.

Every component of the track seems to be in flight; the vocals are consistently soaring towards the clouds and the guitar is a non-stop whirl of plectrum gyration. "We are the architects," Andy Metcalfe proclaims in the ever-so-catchy chorus, and it seems like this band are on the cusp of being architects of a rather profitable music career. With a gargantuan sound like this, Liverpool may just get another big band to shout about.
