In the Post #84: Sound of Guns – Sometimes

‘Sometimes’ is the latest music video from Liverpool’s Sound of Guns. The video has a very defined storyline, featuring some acts of violence and more action scenes. This was the first time of my encountering and listening to Sound of Guns, and to be honest, I wasn’t overly impressed by the song. My ears recognised the style as ‘generic guitar music’ and just left it there. In short: it isn’t gripping. It feels like this genre has been explored far too many times before and that you could easily pinpoint many a band blindfolded and find them playing music sharing the same style.

Though having said so, I can see why fans will adore this song, it features the classic rock n’ roll drum patterns and also somewhat coarse (again, rather commonplace rock ‘n’ roll) vocals. It might be the cup of tea of some but certainly not mine.

The video is definitely for fans of action movies. The music fits the video very well and it feels like watching a movie trailer more than a music video, which is a good thing, because I think the video-and-song combination is much better than the track itself.

‘Sometimes’ is taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Angles And Enemies’, out on 5th March via Distiller Records.
