Moron Police – Captain Awkward Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring an exceptional prog rock/pop band; Moron Police, from Norway. We have reviewed their fascinating song; Captain Awkward, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Moron Police is another promising pop-rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; Captain Awkward, off from their single album release with the same title, which was released in 2019. Moron Police has many special things about them as you can also hear from their music. In my book, it is impossible to fit, in other words, to limit their music style in any traditional music genres that we know of. They call themselves pop-rock band cause they have to call it somehow, yet they simply are much more than that.
Captain Awkward is a powerful statement. This song is a great strategical move that tells us a lot about the band, their abilities, objectives, vision, understanding of music, style, potential and so on. As you will also hear that this song is a prog rock marvel with so many crazy ideas inside, reminded me of the early days of Dream Theater (not exactly their style but their way of thinking outside-the-box). Honestly, I am very impressed by their creation. Believe me, this can be the beginning of something extraordinary.
Time to time I write about how bands make a difference with their way of thinking in music. In this example, there’s absolutely nothing Moron Police is standard about. First of all, it’s obvious that they are all advanced musicians. Their style briefly is a magnificent combination of many different elements from contrast music styles. This is quite unusual. I am a big fan of prog rock music myself and obviously, these gents are well influenced by old fashioned prog bands like Rush as well. Honestly, I would like to congratulate them for their bravery. They have done something against all the limitations in our minds and offered the world this super inspiring piece of work.
It wouldn’t be the right thing to say Captain Awkward has a top-class or authentic sound quality and production. Although they chose to be standard in this way, the song sounds good enough for us to feel every bit of energy in it. This is the classic traditional prog rock sound we are all familiar with, which is quite interesting indeed. On one side, you are trying to do a medley, cutting pieces from pop, prog, rock songs, even from some kids movie/cartoon soundtracks (that melody reminds me of some Asian cartoons) and creating something brand new, in which they are quite successful at. This is giving a message to everybody out there about you, about what you are trying to do with your abilities. But on the other side, you chose to sound super standard and traditional.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that Moron Police has what it takes to become an authentic band in the future. Hands down. All these examples I have given above doesn’t take anything off from them. On the contrary, it’s showing us there’s still some room for them to develop. Once again, we are all well impressed by their music. I believe that, by only having visionary thinking with visionary guidance (a professional), they can easily make it to the top.
Please go ahead and check out the links below if you’d like to find out more about the band, follow them on social media and subscribe to their channels to show your support and also not to miss any upcoming releases.
