When Florida's The Inverted released their debut album 'Thorns' last year it didn't really get the attention it deserved. Now that the young trio (they range in age from 18 to 20) are pushing forward with more of a promotional campaign, they could well find themselves getting that coverage. Citing a wide range of influences which is reflected in the music they make, songs range from the radio-friendly, more commercial single 'Eyes Closed' to tracks that are come with a more indie-rock sound. So when they say they like Silversun Pickups and Arctic Monkeys as well as pop-rock such as The Killers and U2 they really mean it.
Being a more alternative site, it's generally the less mainstream tunes that edge it for us, although you can't deny that the rest of their output has the potential to strike big. 'I Don't Know' comes across as a particular favourite. Lengthier (but good enough that it doesn't seem to drag at all) and perhaps more dynamic, especially in the chorus which sees the drums pick up the pace, and also with a great guitar solo, The Inverted are happy to drop the tempo too, adding a more powerful atmosphere than many of the songs on the album. This is reflected in the disenchanted lyrics that accompany it. The Inverted might just be a break away from coming to a radio station near you soon.
