“By utilising progressive elements not commonly seen in their genre, Standby is able to provide for us something new and innovative that stands out amongst the music of their peers in the Indie Rock community. Finally, Gone for a While overcomes the esoteric nature that often comes with the niche with which it aligns itself by employing a pop-oriented mix that highlights the catchy vocal tracks above all else, and by avoiding becoming too progressive or abstract with rhythmic complexity that could potentially scare off more casual listeners; the record, while clearly being more Progressive-oriented than most in its genre, is just Pop enough to be heard.

RATING: 7+/10”
