Waste­land Fac­tion/ Sony Mu­sic

Blunt - - In Review - DAVID JAMES YOUNG

Save The Clock Tower hail from Tas­ma­nia – but it’s not as though one could de­ter­mine that from their mu­sic alone. For all you know, they could be from Mel­bourne, or By­ron Bay, or the mean streets of New York. The band’s de­but, Waste­land, has un­for­tu­nately been herded in where the cli­mate is favour­ing the lead­ers ( North­lane, In Hearts Wake) rather than the fol­low­ers. This doesn’t mean there isn’t merit to be found on the band’s de­but – those that en­joy the mod­ern lo­cal hard­core scene are likely to en­joy what’s on of­fer. A few tracks make just enough noise to be heard among the masses, like “These Dis­eases” and “Swan’s Song”. At the very least, one is tempted to ear­mark the band to take note of where they go from this point.
