HUSH HUSH BIZ SINGLE REVIEW
Round The Neck

Emerging Australian hard rock band Ion Sky has released Round The Neck, the first single from the band’s forthcoming debut EP Regeneration. The new track should please all lovers of heavy rock, with the band merging classic characteristics such as a blazing lead vocal and fiery guitars with various post-grunge tropes, including an introspective lyric and notable sonic firepower. Comprising lead vocalist Mike Joseph, Mark Savoia (guitar and vocals), Leigh Sciore (drums), Jake James (guitar and vocals), and Matt Goddard (bass and vocals), the band may have just dropped their debut track, but the impression is of a group of musicians who know their stuff and more importantly, each other. Produced by Jake James, Round The Neck is a tantalising preview of the band’s debut EP. As lead vocalist Mike says about the new track, ‘I’ve always had dreams of a demon chasing me, even since I was a child, and it’s something I’ve dealt with in everyday life too, it just comes in different forms. Round The Neck is about facing that inner demon. How do I beat it? Do I let it consume me? Do I let it win? The lyrics explore the themes of this dark place, and emotionally, the song unleashes a rage inside me, held by both me and the demon.’ The lyric reveals searing observations that mirror the explosive musical statement, arriving at an uncompromising resolve. When asked about the band’s ambitions, Mike says, ‘That’s a very broad question, but for me personally, it is connecting. If a song we write connects and makes you feel a certain way and makes you want to come back and listen again or see us live, then that’s what I want to achieve.’ Round The Neck will undoubtedly attract a loyal following and generate some big-time streaming and radio action for Ion Sky.
