Tacono Gate – In Someone Else’s Hands Song Review – Metalhead Community
Today we are featuring another promising alternative rock band; Tacono Gate, from the US. We have reviewed their super moody song; In Someone Else’s Hands, along with its character, style, story, potential and more.
Tacono Gate is another promising moody/atmospheric/alternative rock band I have discovered through Metalhead Community Submissions about three weeks ago with this song; In Someone Else’s Hands, off from their debut EP release; 3-1 Demo, which released in 2019. It’s truly amazing and also super inspiring to see so many people making music in different ways with different vibes and feelings. Tacono Gate is one of those names who just made a debut to their professional careers. And when I take a look at their situation from a bigger perspective, I think they might have a good chance of finding themselves a proper place in their own niche in time.
In Someone Else’s Hands is a sad story, structured intelligently on some depressive and super moody ideas. The song begins with this atmospheric intro, which I don’t know why but reminded me of a cartoon image; an old person who’s been living alone and isolated for a very long time, sitting on his bed in a room where everywhere is only junk (I probably got this idea from their album artwork). I remember Porcupine Tree released a music video from their latest album which kinda has a similar vibe. This actually means one thing; the song is successfully channeling the feeling to the listener. In my book, this is the main reason for making music; channeling the energy/feeling to the other side and In Someone Else’s Hands does that beautifully. Of course, everyone will surely imagine their own version of the story while listening to the song. But in the end, they’ll all realize how intense the energy coming from the music is. On the other hand, as in every uncertain situation in life, the mood changing from time to time. In my opinion, they have the right thing by keeping the composition simple and highlighting the feeling. Great job.
Technically, I really liked the sound of In Someone Else’s Hands. Everything sounds very well recorded, handled, engineered, balanced, polished, mixed and most importantly in great harmony. I am not sure if they have done everything by themselves or worked with a professional (I will explain why) for this album, but both ways, the result is quite satisfactory.
On the other hand, since the first time I listened to this song, I have always had this cautiousness in my mind somewhere for Tacono Gate. Don’t get me wrong here, there’s absolutely nothing wrong about the band or about their music. Only, whenever artists and bands are not able to take care of their brandings, it is never easy for listeners to have a strong connection with the artist. This, my friends, is one of the key factors to success. In this matter, Tacono Gate has chosen to have this mystery about their personalities by not having any single pictures of them, which can be understandable. However, almost all the visuals about the band, their band logos, fonts on the artwork, album covers and etc… are below any acceptable professional standards. They don’t give the listener the right kind of message, or a good impression with this and this is the only negative thing I can say about Tacono Gate.
When I take all these into account, I’d like to say that I am well impressed by the moody sound of Tacono Gate. They are gifted at what they do without a doubt. And I don’t see any obstacle in their way of becoming an important band in their own genre if they can handle Tacono Gate brand professionally and develop their standards in every way!
