This was the first time hearing about such a talented band Family Man, from England, watched their Voit music video and it didn’t take a long time to decide to feature them here on Metalhead Community. An example that has so much to teach, so let’s dive in.
First of all, Void, to me is one of those songs you start the writing process with a destructive riff, and build the rest of the song on top of that foundation. In this case, the band has done a timeless job, all those decisions they made worked, and in the end, they have a hit album opener (surprisingly, it’s the ending song of their album for some reason).
The structure, on the other hand, has qualities from both sides, radio-friendly but artistic at the same time. Their musical approach reminded me of two names, Muse and David Bowie.
Additionally, Family Man is here with us for many reasons, many special things about them, but if I had to choose one, I’d say they are a significant collective. I loved the way everything was performed, tracked with natural-sounding instruments, and made everything sound much more timeless rather than just trendy. The producer in this way deserves credit, he’s done a massive job. Volt sounds fantastic, lively, natural, and timeless. World-class production and sound design.
Lastly, the band also stands out with their artistic approach. The song has a lot of nostalgic vibes from the 90s, as well as in the music video. I had moments where I felt like seeing pictures from Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit and some other Metallica videos. Great job, fascinating video, surely one of the examples I’d show to my friends.
