Birds in the Boneyard Rocks with Debut Single
New York rock band Birds in the Boneyard makes their debut single with “Can’t Complain.” With noticeable elements of rock & roll and blues, the trio consisting of Mikey and Petey Condeleon, as well as Teo Vanovski were unafraid to let themselves shine with “Can’t Complain.” The band’s debut single showcases their style that will reach out to a lot of rock fans.
The short track, which clocks out at under three minutes, starts off loud to immediately catch the attention of listeners. After fast electric guitar strums layered with drums dominated by washy hi-hats, kicks, and snares, and a moving bassline, the song shifts right to the chorus. It’s a good move considering how catchy the chorus is. The melody, as well as the singability of the words, allows listeners to sing at the top of their lungs with the band. I can’t help but feel some excitement every time the chorus rolls around.
The sections where the vocalists quickly sing “They’re always talking about me / And I can’t complain” do a good job driving the song along the chorus along. There’s also some kind of alluring and magical feeling evoked at the song’s quietest moment when the lead vocalist sings in his falsetto voice. Additionally, the harmonizing vocals especially at the outro adds a haunting vibe to the song which pads on the excitement level of the song.
It’s a short song, but the band does an effective job showcasing their own brand of rock music with listeners on a recording. The song would have also benefitted from a stronger and tighter mixing and production. Overall, Birds in the Boneyard strikes the right chords to create a good first impression. They have the sound to appeal to a wide variety of rock listeners, as well as the talent to build on “Can’t Complain” and expand their sound further. The trio certainly has a bright future ahead of them.
