Gent – ‘Warning Sign’   1 comment

‘Warning Sign’ is the debut single from Gent, the inspiration of solo artist Andy Martin. It’s been around for 2 years and was featured on BBC Introducing in January 2018. The ‘Gent’ is a mystery figure, of intrigue value, with a secret identity and multiple facets to his personality. Being the muse for the project, his character changes and adapts to each track and its theme.

So far, the ‘Gent’ has taken Andy to Berlin, in addition to a multitude of UK-based shows. A video accompanies the track ‘Warning Sign’, officially released on December 14th, 2017. Currently, the bio of Gent is still in the makings and is proving to be a lot of fun.

‘Warning Sign’ – Opening with a classy mysteriously slidey bass centred intro, with triangle involvement. Unusual magical sounding lyrics, emanating a distinctly ‘Abracadabra’ style vocal. A warm feeling to it, with a natural drum accompaniment and lots of melody. There’s a compact sense to the overall sound and a definite difference to its whole presentation and performance. The elusiveness and mystique of the Gent’s character is audible and does come across well. It’s definitely more indie/alt based than heavy rock, as such, but it’s unique and unpredictable edge sets it apart from standard material, adding an aura of mystery, leaving behind a random wonder and with it, a taste for more. Catchy choruses complete its otherworldliness, as in keeping with the sense of the Gent, it infiltrates your mind. Bravely other, conscientiously crafted and composed, ‘Warning Sign’ will stay in your memory.

8/10 ********

For fans of rare, mystical indie/alt rock.
