Sketch Club – “Nocturnal Sounds”

A driving, elegant indie rock song that’s sure to hold one’s attention throughout its three-and-a-half-minute runtime, the single extracts a unique, yet very familiar sonic foliage.

Sketch Club, a three-piece from Melbourne, Australia, have been dropping singles ahead of their much-awaited debut LP, Departure Lounge Transmissions.

“Nocturnal Sounds”, which arrived a month ago, comes off as a flowing mix of alt-rock and indie pop, giving a hat tip to the likes of Manchester Orchestra, Snow Patrol, Arctic Monkeys, and U2.

A driving, elegant indie rock song that’s sure to hold one’s attention throughout its three-and-a-half-minute runtime, the single extracts a unique, yet very familiar sonic foliage.

Reverb-laden vocal pulses blend seamlessly with vivid bass chops, resulting in some spacious kind of alternative vibe. A pretty transfixed, bright drumming sustains its pace in the background almost forever, only to catch listeners off guard when it erupts grittily towards the end.

The effort explores the feeling of being cynical about realizing ambitions when discomfort always gets in the way. It attempts to contradict the “if you follow your dreams and work hard you can achieve anything” notion, declaring such cause and effect relationship doesn’t always hold true.

Truly, the poise and bite that Sketch Club use to convey these themes make for a very reflective number.
