Progressive rock 3 piece STARING INTO NOTHING immediately recall another band of the same ilk. I’m in no Rush to tell you who I’m referring to, I have a review to do after all. The first single from Power “Big Brother” ebbs and flows not unlike something from another progressive rock album called Power Windows. This is not to say STARING INTO NOTHING is merely aping Rush, they seem to bring enough of their own inventive style to the mix to transcend mimicry.
Power is expertly produced and mixed by Californian Mark Needham. Needham has worked with Circa Survive, O.A.R, Fleetwood Mac, and Red House Painters. Now how is that for eclectic? One aside, Needham mixed “Mr. Brightside”
by the Killers in 40 minutes. As a reference mix. Which ended up being an unfathomable hit. Needless to say, Power sounds pristine.
