“RockOn March 2010 - Communicator
They say that rock music is dead but try telling that to Glasgow rock band Communicator who are giving the Indie bands a run for their money on the Glasgow music scene. The band formed 2 years ago and in that period they’ve had their ups and downs like every other band from supporting Logan at the Garage in Glasgow to changes in their line up with new drummer Craig Boyle and bass player Darren Kirkbride joining the band. The one thing that hasn’t changed is their attitude and commitment to their music. Just ask anyone who has seen them live from their angst driven lyrics, searing vocals, heart pounding riffs and thundering engine room, and they’ll all say the same thing. That they’re still recovering from having their hearts ripped out and music embedded in their souls.
“The List - You're far heavier than many bands in Glasgow today – would you put yourself in any category?
KC - It would be easy to describe our sound as melodic rock or the resulting sound of U2 playing Led Zeppelin covers, but behind our music we have very meaningful lyrics. Lyrics are something we focus a on lot, in some cases this can cause our songs to last 5 or 6 minutes because we are not just ranting, we are telling a story or making an observation.
In terms of how heavy we are compared to other Glasgow bands, we have found that a good song and a good melody transcends genre allowing us to have our own sound without sounding out of place or alienating ourselves from the rest of the Glasgow scene.
