Callum Pitt – Slow My Heart Rate Down Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another exciting atmospheric/alternative rock band; Callum Pitt, from the UK. We have reviewed their powerful song; Slow My Heart Rate Down, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Callum Pitt is another promising indie/alternative/atmospheric rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this very song; Slow My Heart Rate Down, off from their latest release; Poisoned Reveries, which was released on 2019. The band’s general music style has been a very trendy music genre which often used as soundtracks on movies, videos, video games, footages and more. Honestly, I personally love listening to easy going and relaxing music like this all the time, even though it won’t be totally correct to call Slow My Heart Rate Down a good example of the definition of this genre. I think it has more than that. First of all, the band is making a difference in this song with their way of telling the story. This is truly fascinating. They have done a marvelous job in the making of this song, putting all these pieces together in the best way possible.
The song, in general, has big Bon Iver influence on it. The atmosphere is exactly the same, reminded me of a few songs of his. Time to time I talk about the important factors in music. For me, it has always been the energy along with the unusuality of the ideas. In time, people have started to change their focus to the structure, their style and the way of telling the story than the melody, the actual material itself, just like Quentin Tarantino. When you think about it of course, all of them matters. But in the end, it is all about what gets into your body through the music isn’t it? This question naturally bring two things to my mind; the importance of the sound quality (the post-production, which directly determines how tense the listener will be able to feel the music), and the melody itself of course. In this matter, I can easily say that Callum Pitt were able to reach great standards in both. Whenever I hear songs like this one, I never want to talk about the technical or the musical details, to be honest. Just put on your headphones and close your eyes.
Slow My Heart Rate Down, technically has top class standards, as I have mentioned above. They brought their music (the sound quality) to the same level as Bon Iver’s. And this is truly fascinating. I am not sure if they were handling the post-production themselves or working with someone experienced. But in both way, the result is fantastic. All the instruments are very well balanced, vocals are perfectly polished, everything is in great harmony. The beautiful moody energy begins slowly, then rises, and then slows down again along with the tension of the sentences. It immediately pulls the listener into its world.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that Callum Pitt has exceeded my expectations in both ways. They have proven that they are not an inexperienced or an upcoming band anymore. This song surely will catch some attention and open the band many doors in the future.
