Tyler Rhys - Demo

Rating: 4/5

Opening with throbbing percussive beats and Manics-style vocals ('Super 8'), this demo from Tyler Rhys is from the M & M school of music -hard on the outside, but melting and delicate internally. Yet despite his best intentions, Rhys works best when he embraces his inner pop-lover, as on the exquisite 'Model'. It's an uber-melodic slice of pop that would make Robert Smith proud, all the while lamenting the modern world's “vulgar pursuit of pleasure.” Currently Rhys is on the lookout for a drummer, so any Cardiff players good with the sticks should revisit their Placebo and T-Rex collections and make contact.
