Ah, the struggles of growing up. Swedish pop-rockers Calm Rites certainly know all about them, as evidenced by “Heartbreaks”- a melancholic dose of nostalgic yearning that carries a certain danceability to it. Blending metallic and glistening guitar tones with a simple yet lively drums and bass, Calm Rites channel their inner “The Cure” to deliver a sound that’s as classic and nostalgic as the subject matter. Throw on top some soaring vocal layers in the chorus, and you’ve got yourself a surprisingly authentic-feeling tribute to the mellowed-out rock ballads that followed in the wake of the British Invasion. Calm Rites may only be 2 releases into their musical journey, but they clearly know who they are and where they want to be.
